    Computer app for students to learn the 7s times tables with an ice cream party theme. Download the PDF with the URL and password needed to access the activity.

    Why use this app?

    We looked at various apps on the market and did not find what we needed so we decided to create our own. Here were our requirements:

    The app had to run on a PC, tablet, and phone.

    We did not want to install anything since our computers are blocked at school.

    Our app had to somehow teach the times tables, not just quiz students to see if they had learned it.

    We wanted some kind of personalization feature so our students would see their names throughout the app.

    We wanted corrective feedback (not just a buzzer sound) and some sort of motivational “prize.”

    No advertising – many free apps/web sites have huge amounts of advertising.

    Finally, we did not want any in-app purchases.

    So we created the app we want for the classroom:

    *An app that ran on our classroom computers

    *Students type in their name and see it throughout the game.

    *Just type in the URL, password and run, no installation files, you can put the app on all the classroom computers.

    * Instant corrective feedback

    *Motivational prize at the end with a minimum score required or the exercises have to be redone.

    *An app with three levels: The first level shows the times tables being studied one at a time in sequential order. The second level mixes up the times tables and has the harder numbers appear twice. The third level is the application level where students use the times table they learned to solve problems in story form.

    *There are no ads anywhere in the app nor any in-app purchases!

    * Each app has a different theme for variety.

    We hope this app proves to be useful to you with your students. Your purchase license allows you to put this app on all computers within your classroom. If other teachers would like to use this app in their classroom please refer them to our product page on TpT.

    We also have a computer lab/site license file available for this app on for only $14.99 for unlimited uses in a computer lab or a school site.

    Unzipping a zip file:

    To open a zipped file on a PC, drag the .zip download to the folder of your choice (Desktop is good for you to practice or Documents).

    Also includes the following files:

    icecream_flashcards.pdf

    multiplication7s_sheet1.pdf

    multiplication7s_sheet2.pdf

    These three files are PDFs you can print out for your students. I usually have students complete/practice using these sheets before they are allowed on the app.
