Getting Ready for the New Year

Welcome back!  We hope you had a great summer.  As you think about your new students and wonder where they are with their math fact fluency, we can help you.  Even if you haven't set up an account on Math Facts Pro, you can still use the free side (Lite Version).  Have students do 100 facts on the operator of your choice, and then have them print off the detailed report at the end.  Doing 100 math facts will give you a good snapshot of their math fact fluency.  The program will have a good idea of what their speed is and will be able to figure out on which facts students are using their fingers, or counting.  For more accurate results, create a free trial account, and have them practice as often as you can.  The program stores everything in the database, and the more info it has, the more accurate it is.  It will also be more efficient, because it doesn't have to relearn the student each time.

You can use Math Facts Pro for weekly assessments to see how students are progressing, or you can use it as daily/weekly practice.  It's very smart, efficient, and effective.

If you have a paid account (1$/student/year), I would suggest you delete your classes from last year, which will delete all the data, and then add in your new classes and students.  Try to get the first 100 facts done soon, and then you will be able to log-in and see what they know, what they don't know, and what they aren't quite fast enough on yet.  And they can start work on getting the rust out of their brains.

If you have a school account, we can now upload your students for you from a spreadsheet for only 10¢ each.  See the schools and P.O. page for more information.
