A common complaint: they do not know their facts. But are we teaching students how to recall and apply facts. The providing the practice tasks proven to make the difference? Techniques and tasks for teaching students how to remember and actively recall number facts that are differentiated to adapt to the skills and abilities of students across a span of developmental levels. Each grade, beginning from Kindergarten, plays a role in teaching students how to build visual spatial memory connections that support webs of interrelated number facts and how to retrieve and apply those facts during practice and problem solving events. This work is based on a research-based simple continuum that begins with teaching students how to practice to improve their thinking, then introducing the specifics that we want them to learn for recall. If we want students to recall and apply facts, we must teach them how to learn for recall first.
