Math Facts Practice

I have scanned and uploaded a couple of math facts worksheets and placed them in the important documents section.  Full disclosure...our scanner is a bit funky so the paper looks old and not the best quality.  Still, these are ones that we use.  I usually give the kids 3 minutes to solve 45 questions.  But to show TRUE memorization your child should be able to answer 1 question in 3 seconds or less.  So, technically 45 questions x 3 sec. = 135 sec or 2.5 minutes.  I'm giving them 30 extra seconds. 


You can also find some great worksheets on Math Salamander's websites:
