Automatic Updates

Blast Off! is a favorite math fact fluency practice tool for mature and adult learners that never learned math facts. They prefer it because it is anywhere, anytime, and any device learning lets them practice with tablets and phones as well as computers, on their own time.

Students appreciate the convenience of pulling out their phones anywhere and anytime, practicing during free moments between classes, while waiting at the doctor’s office, standing in line or even right before turning in for the evening.

Blast Off! is also a math fact fluency diagnostic tool for learners from the 3rd grade to adult learners.

Teachers wanting to know which facts are unknown to students could never identify this information through flashcards or mad minutes.

By the time they collect and grade this information and return it to the student for practice, it is no longer applicable, because student knowledge about facts is dynamic. That is actually good news. 

We hope the use of facts will increase known facts. However…

Only practice of known math facts will increase rapid recall of facts to the frontal lobes.

Identifying which facts to practice in games, activities, and study is the only way to target unknown facts.

Blast Off! will identify unknown facts in less than 10 minutes without taxing the teacher’s time!


Quickly Identify the Facts they Need to Practice

Writing facts is a great activity for eye-brain-hand coordination, which helps students learn unknown facts. 

However, writing sevens ten times each, whether you need to or not, is not a good plan, especially if it is done for punitive reasons. But, writing the identified unknown facts (no more than five at a time please) three times each is highly effective, targeted and meaningful.

Let Blast Off! identify the unknown facts for your learners in less than 10 minutes.

Begin your session with a benchmark for all levels within an operation. This is a great idea for the beginning of the year, or when a new student enrolls in your class. 

Provide students with motivation and/or the opportunity to practice, and benchmark them again. You will be surprised at how easily the Blast Off! Math fact fluency program helps students learn math facts in ways that are easy for the student and easy for you! 

Blast Off! includes class and individual reports and charts for longitudinal comparison and documentation proving your students know math facts and are prepared to learn high-rigor mathematics.


Perfect for High School Remedial Classes

Blast Off! is the first real opportunity many older learners have been given to learn math facts. 

Algebra courses can be very difficult in high school for students when they do not have fact fluency. Some adult learners are taking college Algebra for the third time!

Studies are suggesting we have a national math fact fluency crisis.

Only 1 out of 10 (10%) college students can pass a simple, basic multiplication test.*

A Solution for College and Beyond

Most adult learners are motivated to complete college courses with the hope of making provision for them and their household through higher income. Therefore, the practice in Blast Off! is very meaningful to the older learner.

Older students recognize that daily distributed practice is much more effective than practice marathons. They also have the discipline and motivation to practice every day during brief moments of available time without stealing time from other activities such as employment hours or family time.

Blast Off! practice is targeted, allowing the learner to select the operation(s) and level(s) of practice that meets their individual need.
