Kakooma puzzles, developed by Greg Tang, are a great way for students to practice their math facts.  After students have a conceptual understanding of each of the operations and are developing efficient strategies for solving equations, students are ready to practice their basic facts.  Kakooma puzzles are available on an interactive website http://gregtangmath.com/Kakooma/ and books can be purchased from Scholastic or Creative Mathematics .  There are also Kakooma apps available in the iTunes store http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/kakooma-addition-pro/id524425633?mt=8
