At PyroMedia we know one truth: Kids don’t realize how much they are learning when they are having fun. Times Table Lab is a perfect way for kids to learn their times tables.
The game works like this:
-In the Lab, numbered balls drop down and the player needs to move them to the right place on the times table. For example: 9 goes to 3x3, while 12 can go to 3x4, 4x3, 6x2 or 2x6. A new ball drops every few seconds.
-The game starts at a 5x5 times table and works through levels up to a 12x12 times table
-The players get a point for every correct answer PLUS a point for each second left on the clock at the end of each level. For each completed level they get an extra life
-The game ends when players run out of lives (by putting balls in the wrong place) OR when there are 5 balls backed up on the left of the screen.
This is a great way for kids to learn their times tables because instead of rote learning they get to factor back to the times table from the answer – with many numbers that have multiple factors they also learn the relationship between them.
And it’s fun.
