Once students start gaining confidence in individual facts, they can review their knowledge by solving mixed facts. Book can be used to track practice time for each set. Date and time can be recorded at top of each page. Answer to each problem is given at the end of the book. Addition facts table is available at the end of the problems for easy reference.
Knowing addition facts is helpful not only in academics; we frequently use addition in our daily lives too. Just like learning to walk before you can run, learning addition and familiarizing yourself with numbers are building blocks for other math topics taught in school - such as division, long multiplication, fractions and algebra.
Mastering the basic math facts develops automaticity in kids. Automaticity is the ability to do things without occupying the mind with the low level details that are required; this is usually the result of consistent learning, repetition, and practice. For instance, an experienced cyclist does not have to concentrate on turning the pedals, balancing, and holding on to the handlebars. Instead, those processes are automatic and the cyclist can concentrate on watching the road, the traffic, and other surroundings.
Until students have developed sufficient sensory-cognitive tools supporting access to symbolic memory, they will not be able to image, store or retrieve all of the basic facts with automaticity. Therefore, students need a comprehensive, developmental, and multi-sensory structured system for developing automaticity with the facts.
