This software is a modernized version of an old-fashioned workbook. There are 30 pages represented as screens, and each starts with instructions and examples that are read aloud. This electronic workbook does an excellent job of explaining how multiplication is the process of adding sets. As children work through the sequential lessons, they will be exposed to single-digit multiplication, double-digit multiplication, regrouping, multiplying with zeros, three-or-more-digit equations, and word problems. The software presents a similar sequence for division.
On-Track Software: Multiplication and Division: Grades 3-4 is a good choice for children just learning their times tables because it comes with an excellent explanation on each workbook page, presents sequential lessons, scores each page immediately, and has an extra help option. Periodic games and animations help break up the intensity of the learning.
