I developed this set of cards out of necessity. Many students do not have access to flash cards at home, and this was an economical way for me to provide those for them. I also wanted cards that would correlate to the Rocket Math process. Of course, if you don’t use the program, these cards are still great for fact practice!
How to use this flash card series with Rocket Math:
Pages are meant to be printed front to back. The answer on the back is printed in a lighter gray, so student cannot see it through the card.
All pages are meant to be cut into eighths. I use a large paper cutter, but some people prefer to have students do their own cutting.
The multiplication and division facts on these cards correspond to the levels A-W in the Rocket Math program. Levels X-Z are review levels and meant for use of the entire deck.
Before a student begins a level in rocket math, they should be given that particular level in cards. For example, a student just starting the program should be given card set A. All cards are labeled on both sides to indicate level. This allows them to practice before taking the test for that level. When a student passes level A, supply them with the cards for level B to add to their stack, and so on.
