Looking for support for your child in math?
Here are a few resources that you may find helpful.
1. Flashcards from Investigations with space provided for a "clue" or "start with" section so that students can write a hint to help them develop a strategy for becoming fluent with the facts they are working on. (see below)- For example, if a student is struggling with 7 x 8, a hint could be "Start with 7 x 4" so that they can double a fact they know to find the product of a fact they're working on.
2. Fact Strategy Posters to help solidify conceptual strategies for developing computational fluency. (see below)
3. Number Rack Google Add-on. The number rack is a great tool to visually demonstrate combinations, especially addition and multiplication. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/number-rack-by-the-math-l/pdblapgbfbphhldogcijidlkbcgokfkc?hl=en
