Automaticity of Multiplication Facts~ Using Mental Math Strategies to Fluently Multiply

|multiply | multiplication | product | factors | unknown factors | automaticity | efficiency | accuracy | 3.4F | TEK 3.4F | 3.OA.B.6| 3.OA.A.4 |

The concept of using mental strategies to teach multiplication facts has been challenging to some. This method requires THINKING NOT MEMORIZATION. Several say it is easier to just memorize the facts. However, the #1 complaint among 4th, 5th, and 6th grade teachers is that students do not know their multiplication facts. Some third graders memorize them with ease but many learn them temporarily and forget them over the summer months. (Remember, memorization is the lowest level of Bloom’s Taxonomy.) Therefore, the new Texas standard stresses the importance of knowing a thought process to compute each fact mentally which will eventually lead to a deeper knowledge of multiplication facts and automaticity.
I have created 75 practice sheets that can be used again and again using the strategies recommended by many math experts. The order each fact is taught is very different than the methods using memorization. It has been proven effective and is purposefully chosen in this order. I believe it will make a difference in the way students learn and come to know their multiplication facts year after year. I have also included directions, each thinking strategy, answer keys and spinners to help students participate in small groups or partner games.

I recommend this for both 3rd and 4th grade since these methods enhance the knowledge already gained from the previous year. They can be helpful for intervention and can become very self directed for remediation.

These practice pages are a great companion to a PowerPoint presentation that introduces and practices each fact. It is sold separately and bundled together for a reduced price. Check out the links below.

Please see the preview of this product and the companion options. (Note: The practice pages contain equations with unknown factors which lead to an understanding of division but these practice pages do not include division practice.)
