Struggling math students often have attention and memory challenges.
Multiplication and division math fact automaticity frees up working memory for estimation, long division, fraction tasks, algebraic applications and other higher-order problem solving. According to Woodward (2006), “students using an integrated approach that combines strategies for teaching facts with timed practice drills performed better on post tests and maintenance tests that asses the application of facts.” In addition, scientific studies have shown that writing information down by hand helps people remember better than typing that same information on the computer. This intervention combines conceptual understanding, fact strategies, multi-sensory memory techniques and timed, written drills to engineer success for all students, especially those whose command of multiplication and division facts lags that of their peers.
