My kids now enjoy their math drills as they are fun and easy and can be done anywhere.
In the past I've used a variety of methods to help my kids practice their basic math facts. They've drilled on paper with worksheets from The Math Worksheet Site or Worksheet Works; they've also drilled online at Math-U-See and FactMonster.
But this summer I found out about FlashMaster — and everything changed.
I bought one on Amazon using my Swagbucks, the kids started using it to do their math drills, and now we're totally hooked! They can drill their math facts in a much more systematic way than the hit-and-miss method we were doing with the worksheets and online drills. Not only that, but practicing their math drills is simply more fun for them now. Plus they're learning their facts better than before, and of course that's the most important part.
With the FlashMaster, the kids can practice specific tables or increase their difficulty one level at a time. Drills can be timed or not, and even the timed drills can be adjusted, lowering the time limits as they learn the facts better. They can also review their recently missed problems so they're not always drilling facts they know already.
And what I like most is that they can practice their math drills in the car when we're running errands. I'd have to say that FlashMaster has quickly become an indispensable part of our homeschool by making our math drills fun and easy.
What about you? How do your children practice their math facts?
