Math Review Materials 

Math Facts -  Minute Math 

Why do we have to learn our math facts to automaticity (memorized)?  Memorizing your math facts will help you when math problems begin to get harder. Math problems will begin to take more steps to get to your answers. If you don't have your math facts memorized, it will delay you in your steps, and you may get off track easily.

Why do we have to be timed when practicing our math facts? Timing helps you know if you have memorized your facts. If your facts come to your mind instantly, and you write them down instantly, then you know you have memorized your facts.

I know other math strategies to get my answers, why can't I just use those?  You can!!!  There are many different strategies and ways to get to the answer. You should have many strategies or "tools" in your tool box. It starts being about, time.  The quicker you know the fact, the easier it is to get to your next step.

What is math fluency? Fluency means you can recall your math facts quickly and can apply it to your problem without hesitation.  The more fluent you are in your facts, the easier it will be for you to do multi-step problems as you advance through your math lessons.

Here are some tools for you to use to practice your math facts and improve your math fluency:
