Throughout the year the students learn addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division facts. They also learn how to become successful problem solvers, using a variety of different strategies. The students practice their facts, and they make flashcards to practice at home on a nightly basis. This nightly practice is very important to help each student develop speed and accuracy with all of the basic addition and multiplication facts. Once these facts are automatic, we will be able to use them successfully in more complex problems.
