I came across this post I shared on December 3, 2009. And because of its relevance I thought I would share.

The Title: How to Help Children Learn Math Facts

                         By Natalie Stern

 

It is important that children find the time to practise their math facts daily

What are math facts?

"Math facts are sets of basic number combinations for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division."

When children learn their math facts early the knowledge prepares them for more difficult math classes like algebra and calculus. Like many learned skills, it helps them to focus their memory power on developing more complex skills, instead of having to struggle through the basic facts.

There are different ways to help them memorize their math facts.

Let me hasten to say that I am not a math specialist.

Natalie's link lead me to another publisher,  excerpts of which I will also share.

The following are excerpt from Natalie Stern's post:

Excerpts

Step 1

Discuss with your child which math facts they need to practice. When selecting a set of facts, consider what your child is currently studying in math and how the math facts will benefit them. Decide upon an operation to focus on---addition, subtraction, multiplication or division--and how many facts your child should learn.

Step 2

Create a practice area for your child to work at, such as the kitchen table or a quiet place in your child’s bedroom. Keep the necessary practice tools nearby, including a timer, printed practice worksheets, board games, computer, pencils and flashcards.

 

Step 3

Before starting a practice regimen, write a math facts goal with your child to determine the desired learning outcome. Discuss with your child how many facts they need to learn and a reasonable time frame for learning them. Create a math facts goal contract, clearly listing the goal and steps needed to accomplish it.

Step 4

Select a practice method, keeping in mind that what works for some children will be different for others. Dr. Math of the Math Forum at Drexel University also suggests considering your child’s learning style when choosing a practice method.

Some children love working on computers while others enjoy challenging themselves with a board game. There are a variety of commercial and homemade ways to practice math facts. Board games and other math fact practice materials can be purchased from a local education or toy store. Or create practice games using materials you have at home.

Create a dice game by rolling a pair of dice and using the two numbers to create a math fact. Remove kings, queens, jacks and jokers from a deck of playing cards to make a math fact card game. Shuffle the cards and flip two over. Combine the two numbers to make a math fact. Use blank index cards to make a simple set of flashcards. Write the math fact on one side and the answer on the opposite side. If your child has access to a computer, there is an assortment of free interactive math fact games online. Whichever tools and games you choose, be sure to vary how you practice and keep it fun.

Step 5

After a few days of practice, have your child complete a timed test. Create a free test worksheet at Math Fact Café. To test, give your child a pencil and the worksheet. Start the timer and record how long it takes for your child to complete the selected number of problems. Chart your child’s results. Record all test results to monitor your child’s success. Over time, you should notice your child completing the worksheet faster.

How to Help a Child Memorize Multiplication Tables

By Karen Hollowell

Children have to know multiplication facts to be successful in math throughout school.

 

"When teaching math, use a variety of activities to help your students memorize tables so they will be able to recall them easily."

I have seen a young group of boys create musically, what they want to memorize for school in a very unique way with rythm. I am sure others have done much the same. I remember teaching my young son to count in song and even recall singing it in school at a very tender age.

Excerpt

Step 1

Recite multiplication facts each day. It's a traditional, but effective way to improve rote memorization. Have the class or individual say the facts for the number you are currently teaching. Then call on volunteers to recite facts for numbers already covered.

Step 2

Play games in the classroom to help students remember multiplication tables. For example, play "Around the World", a fast-paced drill in which kids stand and give answers to facts that the teacher calls or holds out on cards. They continue standing until they give an incorrect answer.

 

Step 3

Get children to work together in small groups. Have them call out facts to each other or make their own flashcards on construction paper.

Step 4

Utilize the Internet to reinforce multiplication tables. A Plus Math is an educational math site with an interactive review. Children type answers to problems and get immediate feedback on their results.

Step 5

Use music and rhymes to help kids remember multiplication facts. Songs for Teaching.com has lyrics available with catchy rhymes that you can print. You can listen to some of the tunes for free or teach kids the words using tunes already familiar to them.

"A child must be taught how to think not what to think"
