Hello! Thanks for stopping by.
My name is Michael Morris and I have been an elementary school teacher for 30+ years. When I taught math, I was always amazed and dismayed at how long it took my students to figure out the answers to basic operations.
Then I devised a plan to solve this dilemma. I created a page of 100 single-digit addition problems, and did likewise for subtraction, multiplication and division. Then I went to a recording studio and we recorded these problems being read aloud with the answers.
The program that followed, LEARNFACTS, works like this:
Students have six minutes to complete as many problems they can. Then they listen to the problems and answers being read aloud while they are correcting their own papers. If a stunt finishes early, they say "done" aloud and I would tell them their time which they recorded on their paper.
I started implementing this in my 4th and 5th grade classes daily, and was astonished at the results!!!!! Not only did my students love the challenge of improving their scores, the results were amazing and were achieved in only 12 minutes daily! Students were getting so proficient, by the end of the year they were finishing in under 2 minutes with 100% accuracy in their multiplication facts...and that includes adjusted time for wrong answers!!!!
I decided to make Learnfacts available to schools and teachers. One elementary school in a local district bought my program, and also it was purchased by a local private school.
This product includes originals of the problems, an audio cd with 4 tracks, and directions for implementation.
