                                                          Math Fact Fluency

Math Fact Fluency refers to the ability to recall the basic facts in all four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) accurately, quickly, and effortlessly (3 seconds).  Research shows that the more fluent a child is with their basic facts, the better their problem solving skills become.  When a child doesn’t have to “think” about the answer to a problem, they are more likely to explore various problem solving skills which in turn allows them to be more successful when working with multi-step problems.
