Students will be able to fluently multiply from memory all products of two one-digit numbers.

First, go over the rules with your students. Explain what actions they should take when the images appear. If they see a tornado, they should spin. If they see a frog, they should jump. If they see the dancing Gynzy robot, Virko, they should do a funny dance!

Next, choose an exercise. There are a total of 36 exercises to choose from. You can choose between two and three-second intervals. This means that the math problem will appear on the screen for either 2 or 3 seconds. You will also be able to choose which times tables you want to work with by clicking the exercises in that row. Finally, play the video and have fun!
