I'd like to help my daughter learn her multiplication tables as a game.
The basic idea is to create the face of a clock, with 11 numbers on the outside of the clock and 1 number in the center. The child gets to select which numbers go where on the face of the clock and the center number. The range is from 1-12. There will be a long hand on the clock that points to a number on the outer rim which will be mutiplied with the inner number. For instance, 3 is the inner number and 7 is the outer number. The equation will show 3X7=__. The child will enter the answer. if the answer is correct, the long hand of the clock will move onto the next number. If the answer isn't right, the student can try again or skip. There is an overall counter that keep running time of how long it took the student to complete one turn around the clock and will report out the total time.
thanks for reading and I'm looking forward.
