While no one wants to rob kids of their childhood years there is little doubt that the earlier they start learning the better. And, while many parents spend a lot of time reading to their children and starting them off on the road to learning simple words, it's often math that gets left behind. You only have to look at some of the Asian countries who grasp the math concept far quicker than their western counterparts to see how important it is later on in life. Back in the 'old days' times tables were learned on a rote basis with children remembering tables by endlessly speaking...one two is two, two two's are four etcetera. They don't do that anymore. Times Table Match is a fun and addictive education and learning game that uses the flip card method to teach kids their times tables and adds a lot of fun to, what is, a rather tedious exercise for kids.
 
In the first 3 years of school, students need time to play with and develop their understanding of the concepts of multiplication and division. How do they work? What do they look like and where in the real world do we use these processes? Times Table Match is a great new, free and rather addictive fun game for iPhone and the very child friendly iPad that helps to teach kids their math times tables! This new app is simple and easy to use and helps your kids learn times tables. It uses flip cards to match the formula with the correct answer and is considered one of the best tools for kids to learn their times table. Students learn their tables at their own pace and it is important to make learning times tables fun, challenging and rewarding. Playing memory is addictive and fun and helps your child gain confidence in their own math ability without feeling under pressure. Turn learning into a fun competitive game by challenging kids to beat their own time. There are three levels depending on your child's ability and this allows children to practice tables at a level they are comfortable with. There are twelve tables to learn starting with the one, three and five times table and children can pick their own using the simple game play menus.
 
Sadly, it is generally math that causes more headaches for kids than any other subject so it is important if you can turn it into a positive experience from an early age. The thing that Times Table Match does more than anything else is to help kids to understand the concept of tables whilst making it a fun thing to do. By adding a speed element it encourages kids to think fast without the pressure of a classroom situation. But what really sets Times Table Match up is the iPad. Without this wonderful kid friendly device, apps like this just wouldn't capture a child's imagination anywhere near as well.
