    Comments about Educational Insights Multiplication Slam™:

    I have a 3rd grader this year and this is the year we are working to master multiplication. We have been learning skip counting for the last year and so I think we might be able to master it quite well this year. Multiplication slam is a great help for that. There are 5 games -- skip it (which is a skip counting game), fast facts (plain old multiplication drilling), factors (ex. 5 x ? = 10), pairs (you have to identify 2 numbers that produce the answer provided from a choice of 4 -- ex. ? x ? = 14, and you are offered 7, 5, 8 and 2 as possible choices), and sequence (where you have to find the missing number in a skip counting sequence). There are several levels for each game.

    It has a decent volume control and a headphone jack. Due to the number of options (there are 9 "slamming" surfaces), it's not nearly as loud as the math slam. It's also less appealing to the younger set because they have no idea what is going on. My third grader, on the other hand, has shown that she has several skip counting sets mastered and can do the whole thing in 7-8 seconds.

    If you are concerned about mastery and need something that the child can use on their own, this is a great pick. There are only so many worksheets and flashcard drills you can do! I would consider this great for a child in public, private or home school as a way to build mastery of multiplication tables inside, out, forward, & backward.

      Comments about Educational Insights Multiplication Slam™:

      We received this product in exchange for an honest review. Initially, my kids were less than enthusiastic about the idea of practicing math, but they have really enjoyed this product. Although it is a single-player game, the kids (ranging from 8 to 13) had a great time trying to best each other's best times, as well as their own. The type of practice included is helpful - skip counting, factors, pairs, etc. - and the interface is fun and has held up well to four boys playing with it. The kids enjoy the flashing lights and music, but you can also choose to mute it entirely. As mentioned in the description, the game targets the facts from 1 to 9... would love to see it include facts up to and including the 12 times tables, but other than that, it's a lot of fun and very portable, which makes it a great option for car trips and travel in general.

        Comments about Educational Insights Multiplication Slam™:

        Multiplication Slam really gets my (almost) 10 year old excited about multiplication! While practicing, he said on two different occasions, "I (just) love this song!" I like it because it is portable (easy for him to hold or bring to another room), allows independent practice (I don't have to be there holding up flash cards) and has a variety of ways to play and requires him to think about things differently. He can look at his time and try to beat it next time. It reminded me a little bit of the group game I have that is called "Factor Frenzy" but I prefer this Multiplication Slam product. I haven't personally seen this happen, but on the description, it says that missed problems are recycled until they're answered correctly, which is a huge advantage for the learner! This is now one of my favorite toys/tool!

          Comments about Educational Insights Multiplication Slam™:

          This has quickly become a favorite toy not only for the intended child (my soon to be third grader) but for his older sisters as well.

          Multiplication Slam is a light, hand held toy that requires 3 AA batteries (not included). There is a dial that allows you to control the volume. There are several different multiplication games you can play, including Skip It, Fast Facts, Factors, and Sequence. These are all age/grade level appropriate and some have varying levels of difficulty. My kids loved Skip It, as they all tried to race and beat each other's time, making it a fun challenge that all three kids enjoyed.

          Right and wrong answers chosen make a beep sound, only difference is if a wrong answer is chosen, the tone of the beep is a little lower. The display lights around the middle screen light up, but the rectangular middle screen does not.

          I would definitely recommend this to kids learning multiplication.

              Both of my kids loved this! Neither have formally gone through multiplication in school but figured out the concept and patterns quickly. Great review/reinforcement tool to what is taught in school.

              This works great and the kids are having fun while working on their multiplication. This is a great way to help make learning fun. And I am seeing a difference in the remembering of the 7s 8s and 9s which were a problem before seems to be easier now. This is so much better than flash cards. I was given this product foe my honest opinion and in my opinion this is so worth the money.

                We were looking for something to help our son with his multiplications. The games are a fun way to keep math interesting and challenging. We incorporate this into his homework time, when he's done his math problems he can play a game or two before continuing to another subject.
