My daughter spent most of the first half of third grade drilling her multiplication facts. After a while, she got tired of multiplication flashcards and begged me to find some multiplication apps for kids on her iPad. After going through the app store and trying out several duds, here are the multiplication apps for kids we used that really worked.
