About Math Fact Frenzy Multiplication and Division


In reading, letters and words are the building blocks that students use to make sense of the written word and unlock the secrets found on the pages of a good book. When a child is missing basic vocabulary, success in reading is sorely compromised.
So it is in mathematics. Numbers and basic facts are the building blocks that help students make sense of a world that is defined and measured in terms of numbers, patterns, and equations. When students are missing the basic facts, efficiency in mathematical situations is slowed significantly, which can pose a frustrating and potentially embarrassing stumbling block to success.
Teachers and parents need a system that provides a well organized focused approach to teaching the basic facts. They need strategies and materials that can be used at home as well as school that will help children master the basic facts.
Math Fact Frenzy was created to move students along toward mastery of the basic multiplication and division facts in a more efficient and deliberate way. The core elements of Math Fact Frenzy, and the real power behind the program, are the fact families and their related number combinations. For example, 4, 3, and 12 is one of the fact family combinations with a factor/divisor/quotient of 3. This one combination of numbers is responsible for four basic facts:
4 x 3 = 12     3 x 4 = 12     12 ÷ 3 = 4     12 ÷ 4 = 3
There are ten fact family combinations with factors/divisors/quotients of 3:
0, 3, and 0 1, 3, and 3 2, 3, and 6 3, 3, and 9 4, 3, and 12
5, 3, and 15 6, 3, and 18 7, 3, and 21 8, 3, and 24 9, 3, and 27
Thirty-seven different facts can be solved by knowing these ten fact family combinations with factors/divisors/quotients of 3. In Math Fact Frenzy, students learn how to apply these number combinations to solve basic facts quickly and efficiently.
0 x 3 1 x 3 2 x 3 3 x 3 4 x 3 5 x 3 6 x 3 7 x 3 8 x 3 9 x 3
3 x 0 3 x 1 3 x 2   3 x 4 3 x 5 3 x 6 3 x 7 3 x 8 3 x 9
0 ÷ 3 3 ÷ 3 6 ÷ 3 9 ÷ 3 12 ÷ 3 15 ÷ 3 18 ÷ 3 21 ÷ 3 24 ÷ 3 27 ÷3
  3 ÷ 1 6 ÷ 2   12 ÷ 4 15 ÷ 5 18 ÷ 6 21 ÷ 7 24 ÷ 8 27 ÷ 9
To help students internalize these number combinations, Math Fact Frenzy provides a variety of drill and practice options for students with multiple opportunities to interact with the target number combinations. Students are able to take advantage of these drill and practice options at home as well as school.
One powerful component of Math Fact Frenzy is the on-line drill and practice program. This web-based application directly supports each Step and Level of Math Fact Frenzy, providing targeted reinforcement at the click of a mouse. There are no parameters to set, just select a Step or Level and you're on your way. Students receive instant auditory and visual feedback for each answer they enter. Answers can be entered through the on-screen number pad or directly from the keyboard. A record of the students' progress through the Math Fact Frenzy Levels is maintained and can be monitored by parents and teachers. Students are able to access this online drill and practice program from both their home and school computers.
In addition to the various drill and practice options, Math Fact Frenzy provides detailed instructional activities to help teachers and parents "train" students to take full advantage of the fact family combinations and apply them to the basic facts. When students understand how fact families can help them be more proficient with the basic facts, confidence levels rise and success leads to even more success as students work through the Math Fact Frenzy levels.
Math Fact Frenzy Multiplication and Division has five levels that cover all of the basic multiplication and division facts. For the purpose of this program, a basic fact is defined as a product with two single-digit factors or a dividend with a single-digit divisor and quotient.
Levels One through Four of Math Fact Frenzy Multiplication and Division are divided into two Steps, each with its own assessment. Students should master each Step before moving on to the Level Assessment. For example, Level Two has two Steps which cover the fact family combinations of 4 and the fact family combinations of 5. When students master the combinations of 5, they must then pass the Level Two Assessment which covers the fact family combination of
4 and 5.
After students have mastered the first four Levels of Math Fact Frenzy Multiplication and Division, they must demonstrate overall proficiency by passing the Fact Frenzy Final, a 100 problem assessment covering all of the fact family combinations with factors, divisors, and quotients of 0 through 9.
With Math Fact Frenzy you get training for students to effectively use the fact families to solve multiple facts. You get a variety of study options that can be used at home as well as school. You also get a web-based drill and practice program that directly supports the Steps and Levels of Math Fact Frenzy and is accessible from home and school. There are over 200 drill and practice tools, assessments with answer keys, and support materials designed to provide students unlimited interactions with target number combinations.
Math Fact Frenzy is a comprehensive systematic approach to helping students master the basic addition and subtraction facts and supports students, teachers, and parents with practical and effective, easy to use strategies and materials. Discover what Math Fact Frenzy can do for the children in your home or classroom. Discover the power of Math Fact Frenzy!
