Fluently knowing the standard multiplication facts is a very important foundation when doing all kinds of math such as division, fractions, and algebra.
This year your child will practice math facts daily with the goal of memorizing them.
Your child will take 2 timed math facts tests for homework each night. They will begin by mastering 100 problems in 3 minutes. Once that is mastered, the goal is to move to 2 minutes, and then finally work on a 1 minute goal. Everyone has been given a goal based on their math facts baseline test taken last week.
When practicing, the student should be timed.
Then, when the time is up, the student should STOP. He/she should NOT finish all 100 problems unless it can be done within the time goal.
You need to print out a new random math facts sheet every time. You may not use the same sheet over and over. Use the link below to do this. I recommend printing out all of them on Monday to make it easier.
The form to fill out and sign is below the math facts practice link. Please print out and fill out each week. This should be attached to the 10 practice sheets and turned in to me each MONDAY.
We will all take a math facts test at school once a week - usually on Monday. The results will be sent home weekly in the Blue Folder.
Use the link below to generate math facts to print.
The settings chosen should be:
This is an important reminder.
You will do TWO separate sheets every school day.
You do NOT send them to me every day.
You fill out the Practice Log and get your mom or dad to sign it each day.
On MONDAY you turn in your Practice Log all filled out and with parent signatures.
This should be attached to your math facts pages you did during the week.
IMPORTANT: If it is a short week, you don't turn in 10 sheets. For example, on a 4 day week, you turn in a total of 8 sheets.
