# Sheppard Software: Balloon Pop Math

The foundation for math comes from strong basic operation skills. Students often struggle with advanced concepts because they simply don't know their basic addition or multiplication facts. So, what better way to ensure they know these skills than to challenge them with a fun game to practice those skills? Balloon Pop Math offers the students a way to practice their basic multiplication facts by popping the balloon with the correct answer to the problem given. Students pop the problems in order from the least to the greatest product. They can earn points for the speed of their response and their correct answers. Balloon Pop provides teachers a fun and interactive way to encourage students to learn those basic skills that are so needed for math in the Common Core.
