Students in grades 1 – 4 have a Math FACTMASTER Online account to practice math facts. Math FACTMASTER Online is a student's private and patient tutor, remembering what math facts the student is working on from one session to the next. As the student masters facts in a session, the program carefully chooses new facts for him or her to work on.
The goal of the Math FACTMASTER Online is to develop a student's ability to immediately recall the basic addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division facts (2 through 12). The teacher tells the program how fast the student must answer a fact in order to "master" it (usually three seconds).
