A touch screen twist on an educational classic: Japanese Multiplication reimagined for iPad.
How Blocks Are Made
As the sticks intersect, learners can see how the addends of a long multiplication problem get created. How 1s X 1s makes 1s, how 1s X 10s makes 10s, how 10s X 10s makes 100s.
A 2-D Operation
Blocks can be combined by pinching. Even cooler: 1s are combined vertically and 10s horizontally, underlining the dimensional nature of multiplication.
The Write Way
Learners complete the question by writing in their responses from 1s to 100s, reinforcing the connection with the Standard Algorithm.
