From Misery to Mastery…

Imagine your child practicing their math facts without you nagging them.
 
Imagine them learning new concepts easily because they have their facts down cold.
 
Imagine them learning in a way that’s musical, active and fun.

Must-Have Foundational Skills for Math

Why Math Facts Matter

What’s the single greatest action we can take to help our kids succeed at math?

Answer: Teach them their math facts.  Why?   Not having automatic recall of the basic addition/subtraction and multiplication/division facts makes math slow and laborious.  It leads to a frustrated, disempowered math student who is not able to compute quickly.

 

In contrast, students who have memorized their math facts feel confident.   Research shows that they perform better in pre-algebra,  algebra and higher-level math.

Give your child a solid foundation by helping them learn their math facts.

Here’s How Drill Team Works

Memorization research is why we’re effective.

Frequent Quizzing

Frequent short quizzes are key to the memorization process. In just 10-15 minutes a day, the student does various “brain checks” to see if the material has been memorized. Drill Team also incorporates a nighttime review to quickly summarize the day’s work.

Only 3-4 Facts at a Time

A common mistake when trying to memorize math facts is that too many facts are taken on at one time. In Drill Team, the student gains mastery with only 3-4 math facts at time before adding new ones.

Multisensory Learning

Drill Team makes the math facts more “sticky” by using multisensory methods.  We teach through song, physical activity, games, and verbal recitation.

Cumulative Review

To ensure that students do not forget what they have learned, Drill Team does a daily cumulative review of previously learned math facts.
