This multiplication game will help children practice visualize multiplication using arrays.  

Memorizing can be tedious.  Some students memorize math facts without really grasping the concept of what multiplication is, or why we multiply. This multiplication math game focuses on the real world application of multiplying to help students understand what it really looks like.

There are 16 multiplication examples in written and pictorial form, for a total of 32

cards.  Students should work in pairs and aim to make a “match” by uncovering the equation card that matches the graphic card.   

To check if the cards are a match, inform the children that the rows in the picture match the first factor.  The total number of dots represents the second factor. To find the equation, students need to count how many rows and dots and columns are in the picture.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Interpret products of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 5 × 7 as the total number of objects in 5 groups of 7 objects each. For example, describe a context in which a total number of objects can be expressed as 5 × 7.
Use multiplication and division within 100 to solve word problems in situations involving equal groups, arrays, and measurement quantities, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
Fluently multiply and divide within 100, using strategies such as the relationship between multiplication and division (e.g., knowing that 8 × 5 = 40, one knows 40 ÷ 5 = 8) or properties of operations. By the end of Grade 3, know from memory all products of two one-digit numbers.
