Free 13-15 Commutative Multiplication Flash Cards

multiplication flash cards
Today I expanded the collection of free printable math flash cards on Memory-Improvement-Tips.com to include a special set of 13-15 Commutative Multiplication cards.

This set includes all the multiplication facts for 13, 14, and 15, which in itself is unusual. But the set is even more special because both commutative formats for each math fact are show on each card.

For example, 13x7 and 7x13 are on the same card.

Why 13-15 you may ask? Many students only memorize the multiplication facts up to 12.

Well, it turns out there are folks out there whose children are committing to memory the multiplication facts all the way up to 15! These include the students who attend Classical Conversations, a homeschool co-op program. One of the CC parents suggested that I make this set.

If math flash cards are something you might find useful, click the link below to visit the Free Printable Math Flash cards page. Download and print whichever sets you need, and feel free to share the flash card PDFs with anyone you like.

Free Printable Special Needs Word Searches

special needs word searches
I've added 50 free "special needs" word search puzzles to Memory-Improvement-Tips.com. These are printable puzzles in PDF format.

Word search puzzles are a common and fun type of brain game. But for a special needs child or adult, regular word searches are sometimes too difficult.

To help fill the gap, I created a collection of simplified word searches that should be accessible to many individuals with cognitive challenges such as autism, Down's Syndrome, or traumatic brain injury.

Rather than a large grid with many hidden words, the special needs word searches are 8 rows by 8 columns, with just 5 hidden words per puzzle. And the first word has been solved as an example.

If you know someone who teaches a special needs class or have a friend or relative with cognitive issues, print out a few of these puzzles and pass them along if you think they would enjoy them.

Memory Loss from 2 Brain Surgeries

New HTML5-Based Brain Games

I've added an entirely new type of game category to my site. HTML5 games!

Why is this exciting, you ask? Well, Flash-based games are on the decline. It's hard to get them to run in some browsers. HTML5-based games run in any browser and are the wave of the future.

HTML5 is a game format that does not require any browser plug-in to run. These games don't need the Adobe Flash Player plug-in, for example.

Also, these games work great on mobile devices including tablets and even phones. That's not the case with Flash-based games.

Check out the new HTML5 games when you have a chance. They should run in your browser right away and without the need to install any plug-ins.

You can find a link to the HTML5 games section in the right column of every page. It's also in the FREE BRAIN GAMES pull-down menu at the top of the site.

I'll be adding many more HTML5-based brain games in the future. Enjoy!

FYI: Games Links Are Being Worked On

Hi Everyone. As you may have noticed, the game links on my site have been changing.

The old Small, Medium, and Large links have disappeared. You may now see a Play Game link and a PLAY GAME button.

I had to take down the Small, Medium, and Large links due to technical issues. It will take me several days to put them all back the way they were.

Please bear with me. I'll need to update the code on hundreds of page, and this takes awhile Smilie

If you'd like to see what this update will look like when done, please see the Majhong Solitaire, Bubble Hit, or Scrabble Sprint games. I've already converted those.

No sign-up or log-in needed. Just go to a game page and start playing!

GAME TIP #1: Many games on this site such as Curveball were built with Adobe Flash. To play these games, you must allow the free Adobe Flash Player to run in your browser. If you don't see an animation in the red rectangle above, click in the red rectangle and activate your Flash Player. Then the Flash-based games should open for you.

If you see a message that the Adobe Flash Player is "blocked", go to your browser's Settings page and change Block to Ask First, if possible.

If the red rectangle is empty, your browser might not have the Flash Player. To check this, follow the steps on Adobe's Flash Player Help page.

GAME TIP #2: If you cannot get the Flash-based brain games to work, try the HTML5 brain games instead. HTML5 games do not use the Adobe Flash Player. They work in modern browsers automatically. All the HTML5 games are listed on this page.
