Only about 1 out of 10 college students can pass a basic multiplication test at 40 problems per minute (ppm).*
Over the last fifty years, the methods for teaching mathematics have changed. In the past, most 6th graders were expected to pass a multiplication test at 60 ppm. Now, students are no longer able to meet this expectation, and math teachers and professors are rightfully concerned this is impacting their success in mathematics.
The Math Facts Matter’s multi-sensory approach to learning math facts and developing fluency is affirmed by research as the best time-saving strategy to achieve long-term storage of math facts.
Math Facts Matter solutions are successful in the traditional classroom. They also readily adapt to special education, alternative education, intervention, and remediation. Math Facts Matter math fact programs are designed to help adult learners prepare for the GED, college math, and even the workforce.
