Family Fun With Multiplication Factshttp://hur.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/180Family Fun With Multiplication Facts<p>Has your child been asked to practice their math facts at home? Math facts are best learned in a purposeful way that helps students make connections between the facts, as opposed to memorizing them individually. </p><p>Some tips for supporting fact fluency at home: </p><ol style="list-style-type:decimal;"><li>Practice the facts in a meaningful order.</li><ul style="list-style-type:disc;"><li>start with foundational facts like 2s, 10s, 5s, 1s and 0s </li><li>move on to more challenging facts that can be found using combinations of foundational facts, like 3s, 4s, 6s, 8s, 9s and 7s</li><li>use this Mastering Math Facts link below to learn strategies to support each group of facts: <a href="https://bit.ly/3jZKROQ">https://bit.ly/3jZKROQ</a></li></ul></ol><ol start="2" style="list-style-type:decimal;"><li>Help your child see that the order of the factors does not change the product. </li><ul style="list-style-type:disc;"><li>example: 2 × 5 = 10 and 5 × 2 = 10</li></ul></ol><ol start="3" style="list-style-type:decimal;"><li>Help your child practice by decomposing more challenging facts into known facts.</li><ul style="list-style-type:disc;"><li>example one: 7 × 8 can be thought of as (7 × 4) + (7 × 4) </li><li>example two: 5 × 7 can be thought of as (5 × 5) + (5 × 2)</li></ul></ol><ol start="4" style="list-style-type:decimal;"><li>Help your child visualize the facts by building arrays and drawing pictures to represent them. Follow this link for helpful resources: <a href="https://mathvisuals.wordpress.com/multiplication-division/">https://mathvisuals.wordpress.com/multiplication-division/</a>.</li></ol><ol start="5" style="list-style-type:decimal;"><li>Play games such as:</li></ol><ul><li>Blockout: <a href="https://mathforlove.com/lesson/blockout/">https://mathforlove.com/lesson/blockout/</a> </li><li>Math Flips: <a href="https://mathvisuals.wordpress.com/math-flips/">https://mathvisuals.wordpress.com/math-flips/</a> </li><li>Stick and Split: <a href="https://www.stickandsplit.com/">https://www.stickandsplit.com/</a> <br><br>6. Allow your child as much time as they need to find an answer for a fact. This will lower the stress and support them with using the strategies they are learning, and they will soon become automatic with practice.<br></li></ul><p><br></p>
