They also provide individualized feedback to each student, with an immediacy that is not always possible through pencil and paper practice. Being able to adjust the level of difficulty to suit their needs is also very motivating for the students. I am so glad to have come across this great educational tool!"

The grid multiplication app is the latest app in the set of 17 math apps that was reviewed by Wired.com: “A Set of Excellent iPhone Math Apps for the Older Child”.
The Grid Multiplication Method

The grid multiplication method is a two-step process. In the example 39 x 24 the numbers are first broken up into 30 + 9 and 20 + 4, and written on a grid. Multiplying the row and column headers then solves each cell of the grid. Eventually the partial products 600, 180, 120, and 36 are added together.

The App is Easy to Use

The numbers are aligned automatically so that the user can concentrate on solving the operations for each column.

After you solve the operation for each partial product the correct answer will fly to the right place. If you press the wrong button the answer will appear above the keyboard but it will not move.
