Multiplication Recommendations

It takes lots of repetition to get multiplication facts firmly embedded so that they can be recalled instantly, but too much repetition on its own can be boring. A good knowledge of times tables is essential and these games make learning multiplication facts easy and fun. Children will want to play them over and over again, which will ensure that they get plenty of repetition.
