This interactive whiteboard resource is the same as the one found on my newly released iPad Numeracy Basics App.
This IWB resource can be used to help with teaching multiplication facts and times tables. It works in a similar fashion to the Number Square IWB resource previously published.
Rows and columns can be highlighted by tapping the appropriate number. The highlighted number can be toggled off by tapping it again. This will leave the already highlighted numbers still highlighted. To clear these select a colour and then tap the button made up of 4 coloured squares.
As well as highlighting individual squares using colours they can be marked out using movement. Tap the the button made up of a square with movement lines around it and any numbers then touched will begin to rock. Tapping the button with a square and no movement lines will cause all rocking squares to stop.
Highlighting squares using the black colour will also hide the number.
As this resource is matched by an iPad one the option to use it for whole class teaching on the IWB is there for the teacher who, if they have one, can then use an iPad to provide 1 to 1 and small group assistance using a resource familiar to the children.
Press F11 to use the full screen.
Flash Player 11.1 is required for this resource.
If you feel this resource plus an interactive clock, a multiplication grid, a number track and a times tables resource would be useful on an iPad please see it in the app store by clicking the icon below:
