App Overview

This Squeebles Times Tables 2 app weaves an elaborate story of spoiled fun and captured comrades in order to keep youngsters engaged in developing fluency in multiplication facts.  The backstory includes the need to gain stars to free imprisoned fellow Squeebles, and collect bubble-balls and flipfish in order to engage in a favorite Squeeble pastime activity. And then there's the magic bubble-stones, like I said, it's an elaborate story, but young mathematicians will probably find it all fascinating.

  • Has both single number practice options and mixed number practice, making it a good overall app to help young mathematicians gain fluency in the multiplication tables
Classroom Considerations

  • The parent zone settings in the app make it easier to keep track of individual progress. Learners can work at their own pace, while teachers can assess their understanding.
Pros

  • App has a nice combination of a game-like setting, different skills practice opportunities, teacher or parent controls, statistics or progress monitoring features, and reasonable price, making it a good app for reinforcing multiplication facts practice.
