**Instructions for Use **

Making
Models prompts your child to use counting patterns to multiply.

To use Making Models, attempt to solve a multiplication problem, 3
X 5 for example. Click on the button "3" in the first column
and on the button "5" in the first row of the table. Click
the equal sign button "=" in the right upper corner of the
table. The answer appears as a last number in both last column and last
row of the table. Try different multiplication questions.

The
Multiflyer helps your child practice multiplication using a multiplication
table.

To use the Multiflyer, select the level of
difficulty. Click the "Play" button. A multiplication sequence appears
at the upper right-hand corner of the screen. Enter the answer into
the field and click the 'Lock' button. If the answer is correct the
internal ring will glow blue, if it is incorrect the ring will glow
red. If your child is uncertain about the answer, click on the grid
space for the numbers given in the multiplication sequence. As your
child travels further in space to higher levels, the grid will give
less information and it will simply say "no data".
