The most important thing you can do to help your child in math this year is to focus on mastering all multiplication facts (0-12) as quickly as possible.
We will be learning 2-digit multiplication and long division before the end of the first semester. Students should be able to complete 100 facts in 5 minutes. A deck of multiplication and division flash cards for home use is highly suggested for practice (or a purchased membership to REFLEX from the APP store). Freckle is also an option (free).
