Multiplication Arrays using Infinite Arcade

Today in class I introduced students to a game building app on the iPad called Infinite Arcade. Infinite arcade allows the user to build old style arcade games (pinball, breakout, pac-mac and platform games). 

Students identified multiplication arrays in several games of Break Out that I made with the app. Students identified the related multiplication fact and the related fact (for example the below array is 3 x 5 and the related fact is 5 x 3). Afterwards, students played the game of Break Out for that array and they got to help build and test a game.
