A Math Fact Resource

I was introduced to this website not too long ago and I couldn't believe that I didn't know about it already!

This website is a great FREE resource for students to work with memorizing math facts.  It is also a great resource for you, the teacher, to see what facts students need to learn and their progress.  It is a program that students can use at home too.

There are video tutorials on the website on how to get started and all about the goodies you can find on their site. Enrolling is very easy.  You get reports on usage and skill level once a week.  After several uses it begins to chart the students progress.

I made an incentive with my students to use it at home.  For every five times they use it at home, they earn a prize. They never know what the prize will be, something small or a little bigger.  For the first five stars they earn I have been popping a bag of mini-size microwave popcorn just for them.

Check it out today, sign yourself up as a student, take the placement tests and see what the students are going to be doing.  Hope you can use it!

  2. I discovered this site while I was snowed in for 5 days back in February. I emailed my principal, the parents in my girl scout troop, the parents of the kiddos in my class and signed my kids up. It's an awesome site and I've seen some great progress with my class. My own kids have had wonderful success as well!
