Math Facts Practice-When children gain mastery of their basic math facts, they are better prepared for more advanced Math skills. Therefore, it is essential for them to practice the facts on a regular basis. We will be using a web based program located at www.xtramath.org in school. It can also be used at home. More detailed information will be sent home soon.
Students also have the option of using the program on any computer with Internet access outside of scool. A flyer has been sent home with each child to explain how to access the site outside of school.
The practice sequence is addition, subtraction, and multiplication. Hopefully, the children will go through the addition and subtraction levels fairly quickly, as it is expected that students entering Third Grade already know these facts.
