Multiplication Tips to help your child master his or her facts.

Multiplication Facts 2-10

Your child needs to know his or her addition, subtraction, and multiplication facts in order to succeed this year, and in the future. Remember every child learns differently. Here are a few suggestions to help your child study:

Writing the facts for 7 or more times before going to another one... Example: 3x3=9, 3x3=9, 3x3=9 Say each number as you write them.

Flash cards (You can make your own out of paper or any other material.) If we are working on the 4 facts, then show him or her the card. Time for 5 seconds. If he or she can correctly tell you the correct product then place that card to the side. If your child can’t answer it correctly in 5 seconds are less, then keep it in the study stack. Your child needs to study the facts that he or she does not know each day.

The number sentence should be written on one side, and the answer on the back. The child can practice these alone or with someone.

The child might also make a tape of himself or herself saying the facts. Record your child saying the fact about 10 times each before going to the next one. For example: 4 x 8=32, 4 x 8=32, Then, this tape can be played back whenever your child has free time or traveling in a car, etc. It is very important to play the tape while your child is falling asleep at night.

Drills- The parent writes out 10 scrambled facts for the child to answer, and times him or her for 25 seconds.

Practice makes perfect. Some children have a harder time learning the multiplication facts, but do NOT give up.....keep practicing. Please let me know if there is any way that I can help.

Tips for learning your multiplication facts.
Multiplication Tips

Multiplication Facts 2-10

The children need to know his or her addition, subtraction, and multiplication facts in order to succeed this year, and in the future. Remember every child learns differently. Here are a few suggestions to help your child study:

Writing the facts for 3 or more times before going to another one... Example: 3x3=9, 3x3=9, 3x3=9 Say each number as you write them.

Flash cards (You can make your own out of paper or any other material.)

The number sentence should be written on one side, and the answer on the back. The child can practice these alone or with someone.

The child might also make a tape of himself or herself saying the facts. Record your child saying the fact about 10 times each before going to the next one. Then, this tape can be played back whenever your child has free time or traveling in a car, etc. It is very important to play the tape while your child is falling asleep at night.

Drills- The parent writes out 10 scrambled facts for the child to answer, and times him or her.

Practice makes perfect. Some children have a harder time learning the multiplication facts, but do NOT give up.....keep practicing. Please let me know if there is anyway that I can help.

Mrs. Phillips

Math Hello Letter

April 8-12, 2013

Dear Parents,

            I will be sending home individualized homework for each child. Each child has different skills that he or she has not mastered this year. Please help your child with his or her weaknesses at home as well. Some of the children are having trouble with basic operations such as addition and subtraction. THANK you very much for your help at home. Working together as a team each child will succeed in mathematics.

Monday: What Combinations Can I Make? Students find different combinations of numbers to make a given sum and solve addition and subtraction story problems with more than one step.

Tuesday: Making Combinations Students discuss their strategies for finding combinations of amounts of money with a sum close to $10 and continue to practice addition and subtraction.

Wednesday: End-of-Unit Assessment Students solve three problems to assess their strategies for solving addition and subtraction problems with 3-digit numbers.

Thursday: We will be working on ARMT open ended questions with addition and subtraction word problems. Here is one example for Thursday night homework:

Bob and Ed played a game. Bob scored 345 points. Ed scored 579 points.

A.   How many more points did Ed score than Bob?

B.   What was the total number of points that Bob and Ed scored altogether?

C.   Two new players scored a total of 987. How many points did the two new players score than Susan and Daniel did together?

*Remember to show all of your work and explain your answer for this problem. Your answer MUST be written so that another person can read and understand it.

Bring this with you to school Friday!

Friday: ARMT open ended questions with money and change problems.

Multiplication drills on the facts that you did not make a 100 on last week will also be today. Practice makes PERFECT! STUDY your facts.
