Mastering multiplication facts with “Scratch” the cat …

Scratch programming allows “remixing” applications which basically means create a new scratch program from an existing one in a very simple way. This time my Son is mastering multiplication in preparation for his upcoming 3rd grade state evaluation exams. Learning math facts requires responding accurately to equations with cadence, the most consistence cadence is the better.

This is the description of our scratch remixed program where we change it from applying addition/subtraction match facts to multiplication mat facts. It took my nine year old and myself just 15 minutes to make the necesary changes and publish it on line.
