Multiplication Squares 8 through 12

type   <prev | next>

To help a family member get through the burden of memorizing her times tables, I wrote a little videogame for doing multiplication games. The game took a week of implementation time, and became a self-indulgent task for a father (instead of achieving the goal of a real educational task for an understandably impatient someone).

I then wrote a simple javascript program to produce multiplication sheets. The concept is straightforward: load the .html file and hit refresh and you get a new one. Successive refreshes generate new unique pages. Each time you refresh, just print the page out. This method, although primitive and not artistic, worked the best.

  up to 8x8
  up to 9x9
  up to 10x10
  up to 11x11
  up to 12x12

If you download the .html file to your local computer it will run even when you are not connected to the network. Just hit 'refresh' and you get a fresh challenge for a youngster!
