Thanks for your interest in my Timed Tests: Multiplication and Division Fluency! This product came from a need in my own classroom. My students didn’t know their basic facts, and this problem was causing them to work VERY slowly in the rest of their math work. I had to do something. And after using this product in with my students, their math speed, success and motivation increased incredibly!
Here's how I managed these in my classroom:
1. I use these tests to test my students over each fact family, one at a time. The ideal time is to give them 1 minute to complete. You can adjust if necessary. There are about 25 problems to solve.
2. Once they get a 100% within the time period, they move to the next family. I have file folders set up on a shelf in my classroom for each fact family, so all I have to do is say "get your timed tests ready" and they get the one that they are on.
3. Students check their own tests. They have a multiplication table on their name tags, but you can also give them on to keep in their math notebooks., I only had them turn their quiz in if they get a 100% so I can double check. If they miss any, they use it to study for the next day. Doing it this way, it's personalized so they aren't necessarily competing against themselves, and I can keep a record of who has passed which test. They add a sticker to their chart for each fact family test that they pass. I have prizes for when they finish their charts.
I also give them a weekly 100 facts quiz (not currently included, but will be an updated addition soon). First quarter they have 8 minutes to complete, and second quarter they are down to 5. I take this 100 fact quiz with them at the beginning of the year, and usually get about 1 ½ minutes. It’s a challenge to beat my score. They check their own (I give them an answer key), and they tell me their scores when finished. I mark all of them in my grade book, but I'm only counting their top 3 of the quarter for a grade. Many of them were surprised at how much quicker and more accurate they are now that we've been doing the shorter daily quizzes.
This product includes half sheet timed tests for the 3’s family through 12’s family in both multiplication and division. The division tests have 2 fact families per test. I have also include a mixed facts division timed test. Also included are student sticker charts to track progress. These can either be hung in the room or kept in student notebooks.
Print and laminate these tests and place in a math center with 1 minute hour glass timers to give your students even more practice with their facts!
I have lots of multiplication games and activities in my store, so make sure to check out these other great products to help your students master their facts!
