Multiplication games

We discussed multiplying and dividing integers in algebra 1 today. I've found that a little review of the times tables doesn't hurt here. I have two web activities that keep them engaged. One is a little timed quiz site called Quick Flash. After they've successfully completed three screens, they get to choose a new theme. They enjoy that, plus you can see from a distance how they are doing. The other one is Balloon Invaders. The game part is pretty tough, the balloons are very likely to take you out on your first couple of tries, that keeps them going.
