A student with basic fact fluency can apply strategies or retrieve known facts quickly. Games are powerful tools for developing fluency because they provide significant practice and a forum for describing and hearing strategies. The guide’s strategies, games, and assessment tools offer a powerful approach to basic fact mastery, helping every child develop fluency with their multiplication facts (and related division facts), while simultaneously increasing their number sense and confidence in mathematics. This dramatically different approach to basic fact mastery replaces long-used practices that have led many learners to dislike math and feel anxious about their abilities.
