Why Is Fast and Accurate Recall of Math Facts Important for Students?

Having these facts at their fingertips will make mental computations more efficient and will significantly assist their understanding of other mathematical concepts, such as fractions.

How Could This Resource Be Used?
The key to fast and accurate recall of multiplication facts is practice, practice, practice!
Provide these worksheets to your students to work on at home during the week. At the end of the week, provide them with the same worksheet and time how long it takes them to complete the questions. Remember, the focus is to achieve both speed and accuracy. Remind your students that there is no point completing quickly if the answers are incorrect. Similarly, there is little point in being accurate if it takes hours to do so!
For the purposes of differentiation, you may wish to vary the time at which you introduce the speed challenge to your students. Some students will need more time to practice their recall of these facts, and the time challenge may stress them or lead to a decrease in confidence if introduced too early.
