This program uses the number line to help the student understand multiplication. For instance, if
the problem is 6 x 2 =?, the program will tell the student to Start at 0 and count 2 spaces to the
right. Click on the last number you reached. (We call this a “jump”) Now start at the last number
you reached, and make more jumps until you have 6 jumps. Then click the "Done” button. The answer
(12) moves up into the missing space in the number statement, and the program voice says “six times
two is twelve.”
