Improving Student Success in Math: FACTastic Video Series #1

Do your students struggle to learn math facts?

We know that by 6th grade (TEK 6.3D) students are expected to add, subtract, multiply, and divide integers fluently. Using the FACTastic Math Strategy System is a great way to meet this goal. The FACTastic Math Strategy System is a comprehensive program for teaching basic math facts through strategy-based instruction. In addition to building flexible thinking, teaching of strategies to recall basic facts improves math calculation skills which are necessary for success on STAAR.

 

Classroom Example

Using the FACTastic cards is a great way to increase student engagement and participation and to improve student academic success. In this video, the FACTastic cards are used to teach 9s facts for multiplication and division. Students are able to easily master multiplying and dividing 9 by thinking of nine differently. The flexible thinking students gain by using these strategies enables them to see a number in several forms and use the knowledge and skills they already possess to find a solution for an unknown fact.
