Subject: Re: math fluency
Most of the research I've been reading lately says a fact should be recalled in 2 seconds or less. We use the Great Leaps Math Program for testing in our county. The students must answer a certain amount of problems correctly in one minute to be fluent. For third grade for adddition and subtraction facts (0-18) they would need to answer about 25 problems correctly in a minute. For multiplication facts 0,1,2,5,10's They would need to answer about 25 problems in a minute. We teach the 0-9 facts but they are only required to be fluent on 0,1,2,5,10's by the end of third grade. We test 4th and 5th graders on all of the mult. and div. facts.
