Praise for Mastering Math Facts
"I bought this just a week ago and my kids are already starting to learn their multiplication facts! They are actually excited every day to take the quiz. So easy to get started in the classroom. Thank you for an awesome product!"
—Elaine Laws, Kernersville, North Carolina, 3rd grade teacher
"I have used Mastering Math Facts with both 4th grade and 5th grade. It doesn't matter how well they know their facts when we start, everyone will learn them by December. We do the daily drill using white boards and a weekly fact test on Fridays that's random. My special education kids even joined our ice cream party. The kids loved watching their scoops pile up. Absolutely a great resource that I use every year."
—Tisa Fischer, Bakersfield, California, 5th grade teacher
"This is a wonderful tool to engage students in mastering their facts without having anyone feel negatively about themselves or their lack of progress in competing against others students. Students work at beating their own goals each time and then encourage each other to attain their class goal for each multiplication fact. It has promoted individual confidence and team work in my class. Thank you for this universal tool."
—Natalie Alaniz, San Antonio, Texas, 3rd grade teacher
"My school bought Mastering Math Facts for all the teachers. Not only are the games easy to play and for kids to understand, but it aligned perfectly to the 3rd grade Common Core essential standards for North Carolina!"
—Dara Platon, Pittsboro, North Carolina, 3rd grade teacher
" Mastering Math Facts has been such a great help! As a tutor, I see everyday how not knowing your math facts can hold you back from learning new concepts. I gave this program a try and loved the quality work inside. The games have been so much fun and my students request them again and again. It's also saved me mountains of prep time. I keep them the pages in sheet protectors and pull them out quickly before my students start to arrive. This program is an asset to any tutor. Thank you, Laura, for saving me precious prep time and helping my students master their facts."
—Adrianne Meldrum, Meridian, Idaho, tutor
"My class got really motivated by the ice cream scoops and resulting ice cream sundae party. But, more than that, they were really proud every time they earned a scoop. The scoops provide a visual reward for each level the kids pass. It really motivates them. What was surprising was the number of parents at parent conferences who asked about the "scoops." Some of the students were actually bugging their parents to help them learn their multiplication facts. It was awesome! Those students who had a more difficult time with memorizing their multiplication facts found that their friends were more than willing to spend their lunch recess to help them! This cooperation actually brought the class together, and we found that there was a little bit of competition with the other third grade class who was also doing the scoops. The kids thoroughly enjoyed it, I found the results to be fantastic, and I will certainly use it again this year. This was the first year that my students learned their multiplication facts to 12 by December! This was, by far, the easiest way to teach multiplication I've ever used. The students had nothing but positive comments, with most of them saying, ‘Now I get it!’"
—Sharon Manka, Plumas Lake, California, 3rd grade teacher
"As primarily a reading teacher, I am not always up-to-date with the latest ways to teach math. So when my nephew was struggling with his math facts, I found Mastering Math Facts and downloaded it right away! This was an extra special project for me since I adopted my nephew this year while his mom is fighting in Afghanistan. The fact that I could make learning fun for him was priceless — not to mention the amazing thank you email I received from his teacher!"
—Nathania Vanderham, Phoenix, Arizona, 5th grade language arts teacher
