Recall of Basic Facts According to the Manitoba Curriculum

Curriculum Link
K.N.1. [C, CN, V]
Say the number sequence by 1s, starting anywhere from 1 to 30 and from 10 to 1
Count to 30.
Count Backwards from 10
1.N.10.  [C, CN, ME, PS, R, V]
Describe and use mental mathematics strategies including:
  • counting on, counting back
  • using one more, one less
  • making 10
  • starting from known doubles
  • using addition to subtract
to determine the basic addition and related subtraction facts to 18.

Recall of one more and one less, complementary (compatible) numbers that add up to 5 and 10,
doubles (up to 5 + 5), and related subtraction facts is expected by the end of Grade 1.
2.N.10.    [C, CN, ME, R, V]
Apply mental mathematics strategies, including:
  • using doubles
  • making 10
  • using one more, one less
  • using two more, two less
  • building on a known double
  • using addition for subtraction
to develop recall of basic addition facts to 18 and related subtraction facts

Recall of facts to 10, doubles to 9 + 9,
and related subtraction facts
is expected by the end of Grade 2.

3.N.10.    [C, CN, ME, R, V]
Apply mental math strategies to determine addition facts and related subtraction facts to 18 (9 + 9).
Recall of addition and related subtraction facts to 18
is expected by the end of Grade 3.
4.N.5.  [C, CN, ME, PS, R]
Describe and apply mental mathematics strategies, such as:
  • skip-counting from a known fact
  • using halving/doubling
  • using doubling and adding one more group
  • using patterns in the 9s facts
  • using repeated doubling
to develop an understanding of basic multiplication facts to 9 × 9 and related division facts

Recall of the multiplication and
related division facts up to 5 x 5
is expected by the end of Grade 4.

5.N.3.    [C, CN, ME, R, V]
Apply mental math strategies to determine multiplication and related division facts to 81 (9 x 9).
Recall of multiplication facts to 81
and related division facts
is expected by the end of Grade 5.

Practice The Basic Math Facts

Math Facts Fluency Leads To Higher Order Mathematics
Through automaticity students free up their working memory and can devote it to problem solving and learning new concepts and skills (Geary, 1994).~ Quite simply, a lack of fluency in basic math fact recall significantly hinders a child’s subsequent progress with problem-solving, algebra and higher-order math concepts.~

Fluent Math Facts Mean Less Confusion
Math facts are important because they form the building blocks for higher-level math concepts.~ When a child masters his/her math facts, these concepts will be significantly easier and the student will be better equipped to solve them faster.~ If the child spends a lot of time doing the basic facts, he/she is more likely to be confused with the processes and get lost in their calculations.

Math Fact Automaticity Affects Performance
In later elementary, students have longer and more complicated computations to complete to check their understanding of various concepts.~ At this stage, if a student does not have his/her math facts committed to memory, he/she will spend a disproportionate amount of time figuring out the smaller calculations and risk not completing the assessment.~ This not only affects their performance in math class, but will also in other subjects, such as science and geography.

Less Math Anxiety
Math can be compared to languages in some ways.~ Just like you have to learn to combine letters into words and words into sentences – and we have strategies like phonics and sight words to help kids to learn to read - math facts are the foundation blocks for learning the next level of maths.~ There is rote learning involved in both language and math mastery. Math anxiety starts when children fall behind and can’t keep up.~ To avoid these anxieties, students’ early elementary years should focus on learning the foundation math skills needed for later years – math facts are among those important math skills.

A Few Ways To Help Them Recall Their Math Facts.

        (ask a question and then toss them a ball, balloon or rolled up socks, they get a point if they answer before they catch, sneaky way to get help sorting socks)
(each play one card for greater than or less than, to practice adding or multiplying by 3 lay a 3 card in the middle and you each play 1 card each time the highest sum is the winner)
Have fun with numbers, and the recall will come.
