TEACHERS (of all grades)-INSTEAD OF BEMOANING A LACK OF ARITHMETIC SKILLS, LET'S WORK WITH THE PROBLEM IN BITE-SIZE CHUNKS (that is, manageable chunks time-wise--daily, weekly, whenever you have an extra 5 or 10 minutes) OFTEN THROUGHOUT THE SCHOOL YEAR IN ORDER TO REINFORCE THE CRITICAL IMPORTANCE OF THIS KNOWLEDGE.
For grade 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 TEACHERS, this is a tool (that I have used extensively) to reinforce multiplication and addition skills of numbers from 1 to 12.
I offer 2 different formats:
The first FIVE have 3, 5, 10, 15 and 20 problems for each of the 6 skills (resulting in (18, 30, 60, 90 and 120 problems respectively).
The second TEN are in QUIZ form where there are 10 randomized questions chosen from the 6 skills.
Do your students the ULTIMATE FAVOR--inculcate the desire to know these facts since every math teacher from Middle School onward decries the lack of skills in this area--OF ADDRESSING THIS SKILL in a UNIQUE FASHION.
The dreaded DRILLS can now be done in a comprehensive, different-every-day, approach that can encourage COMPETITION (individual OR group), MASTERY and ENJOYMENT. Best of all, this is far cheaper and versatile than flashcards as you have as many approaches as your imagination will allow.
[The problems in All WORKSHEETS and PREVIEWS are printed in difficulty (1 [easy], 2 [not so easy], 3 [proficiency] up to 4 [mastery]) order within a skill. The actual difficulty level appears slightly to the left of the DK box of each problem in a very small font. Also, instructional references appear on worksheets but are optional on quizzes.]
