Many of our learners are missing some key fundamentals from their primary school grades – things like multiplication and division. For some this is an easy thing to fix by simply practicing more, and we’ve included some fun games below that will help you practice without getting bored.
These games below are focused on drilling your multiplication and division skills in a fun and engaging way. But please watch the videos we’ve included below to make sure you understand the principles before starting on these games.
For others, there are some foundations missing where you’ve either forgotten or never been taught properly how to picture what division is, how to take the abstract concept of division and apply it to real life in a concrete/physical way. For you – we have some great little games that may seem very simple, but are key to helping you picture what is being asked in a mathematical way.
