As a teacher and a home schooling mom, I go out of my way to find new and unique ways to teach my students and my daughters. Recently one of my students got talking about math and multiplication. At age 8 he amazed me with his knowledge of multiplication facts and such. Upon talking to his father I learned that my student had been playing with a game called Digitz.
I asked to see the game, and was amazed. The inventor of this game has come up with a unique way to study and review multiplication facts through a variety of games. Even my 6 year old was able to set the game for the 0, 1, and 5 times tables and was soon learning how to solve the problems. She had never done multiplication before in her life.
In my years I have taught multiplication through class games such as Jeopardy and bingo. I have also used flash cards and such, but nothing compares to Digitz. On top of this, it is portable so that the child can take it in the car, and there is a volume control dial in case you are somewhere that it can not be turned up. I highly recommend this game.
