Tips & Tricks
1. Multiplication Table
Children can use the built-in Multiplication/Division Table to look-up the answers to more difficult multiplication and division equations.
2. Number Combinations
Players learn to identify number combinations and patterns. For example, four sets of 12 and 13 equals 100 (25 per pair). Four sets of 9 and 11 equals 80.
Children can use estimation and divisibility rules to solve difficult division equations. Stage one of each level provides the answer to the equation as well as the total of the tiles that have been flipped. These help functions can assist emerging learners with learning their times tables and division facts.
Another strategy is if the tiles flipped down are too high then they turn red and this indicates to the player that the answer is a lower number.
Some players use divisibility rules to determine the answer. For example, the ones digit needs to multiply to 2. 8 multiplied by 4 is 32 so the player can conclude that the correct answer is 16.
