I remember learning my multiplication tables and it was a bit of a chore. That is why I was excited when I got the chance to review the Educational Insights Multiplication Slam. It is an electronic learning tool to help you child learn and practice multiplication skills in a fun way. And you know what that means- your kids won’t be able to resist it! Seriously, I still plan to help my kids learn their multiplication tables but with Multiplication Slam, I know they will get practice without me having to bug them about it.

Multiplication Slam Review- Electronic Multiplication Learning
They are already playing with the Educational Insights Multiplication Slam after dinner without me asking. They like the challenge of it. And here is the interesting part- my six year old watches my 8 year old so he is learning too! I plan to give them the Multiplication Slam to play with on road trips as a way to keep them busy having fun and learning at the same time.
5 Fun Multiplication Games
Educational Insights Multiplication Slam features five fun multiplication games that reinforce important multiplication concepts for numbers 1–9. The child just reads the problem, scans the possible answers, and slams the one that’s correct!
There is one game called Skip It. With this mode, the child picks a number to count by. It they pick 3, for example, the 3 multiples will show on the screens as choices 3, 6,9,12, and so on but they will be scrambled and the child has to put them in order. Better move quickly, though—each game is timed and the faster you get through the questions, the better your score! This is a great game for getting the feel of counting by numbers- great for beginning multipliers.
Another game is called Fast Facts. With this game, they pick a number again to focus on. If they pick 3, for example, it will show a 3 multiplication problem like 3×5 in the window and then they will have answer choices and they have to slam the right answer. Missed problems are recycled until they are answered correctly, ensuring comprehension and mastery.This is also great for beginning multipliers.
Increasingly difficult levels, flashing lights, and fun sound effects keep kids slammin’ for more! There is a Factors game, where the child slams the right answer to the missing factor. For example 3x_=12 and your child needs to slam the 4. There is also a Pairs game which is even harder where the child slams the pair of factors that makes the number on the screen. The sequence game is great multiplication practice too.
My kids enjoy playing Educational Insights Multiplication Slam and it is a great tool to reinforce the learning they do at school. Anything to make learning multiplication fun is a good thing in my book!
