## Facts Master

One of the most important skills students will need for fifth grade math is automatic recall of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division facts. I strongly encourage all students to practice math facts at home for at least 5 minutes each night. Our class will be charting progress as we take Facts Master practice tests each week, with the goal of correctly answering all 300 problems in under 10 minutes. Facts Master tests are leveled by degree of difficulty:

Students will take the beginning test until they complete all 300 questions in under 10 minutes. They then will move to the intermediate test and eventually the advanced test. Download the different Facts Master sheets below and use this online stopwatch to time yourself!

To help practice multiplication facts, our class will also periodically take 3-minute Multiplication Challenges as math warm-ups. Download these below.
