MathBait™ Multiplication


Share this resource!

Help students build fluency with Multiplication Bingo! In this fun alternative to worksheets, students can play with others or against a computer player as they try to reach 5 in a row first.

This activity is great for students new to multiplication as well as more experienced students looking to improve their fact fluency.


Resource Type

Digital Game

Primary Topic








Our digital Bingo can be played individually (against a clever computer player) or in a group/with others. The goal of this activity is to strengthen multiplication fluency and continue to help students utilize multiplication notation. Speed is not the goal here, so if playing in a group, be mindful of how long it may take a student to determine the value. For younger students, playing in pairs is an excellent support system. Students may share a card/device in order to work together on the products.

Remembering this should be a fun, low stress experience is vital!

Against the Computer (1-player)

Select the "against the computer" option from the drop-down menu. Next, slide the red, green, and blue values to select your marker color. Click Play to begin.

Click on "New Board" to find a board you'd like to play. Rules are the same as traditional Bingo, only one cell may be marked each round - even if you have a repeated value on your board. When happy with your board, lock it in.

Select "Call" for the host to call out a product. It will be shown on the top right of the screen. Search your board for the solution. For instance, if the call is 3×9, search for 27. Selecting another value will display an error, "That isn't a valid space!". If 27 is clicked, it will be marked with your color and you may proceed to the next call. If your board does not contain a 27, select "Not on my board" and play will continue to the next call.

The computer will also play! They have been trained to look for the best option making for a competitive game. The first to earn 5 in a row (vertically, horizontally, or along the two diagonals) wins.

Note, the game will not check your board for you. If the product is on your board and you select "Not on my board" the game will continue without warning.

Playing with Others

Have all players or teams open the game on their own device and select "with others" from the drop-down menu.

One (and only one) player will be the caller. We recommend a teacher is the caller for the first few rounds. The caller should check the "I am the caller" box on the home screen. All other players should leave this checkbox unchecked.

All players may select their marker color and pick play to begin. Click "New Board" to generate boards. Once each player is happy with their board lock it in.


The Caller will see a "Call" button at the top of their board. The Caller may play along on their board or simply call out the products. When the expression appears, the caller calls out the multiplication statement to all players. If playing, they may search their board for the product or select "Not on my board". After giving players time to mark their boards, select "Call" to pull the next product and continue until someone has a Bingo.


For all other players, rather than a "Call" button, they will see a drop-down to record what was called. Use the drop-down to enter the value when called out. This is a great way to ensure everyone has correctly heard the value. The call will appear in the top right after selecting the check. Continue play as normal searching your board for the value or selecting "not on my board".

Have fun! As with all our digital games, for the best experience we recommend students select full screen mode (this can be achieved by clicking the button in the bottom right corner of the game) and utilize a device with a larger screen such as a tablet, laptop, or desktop computer.
