Smart math fact fluency practice you can afford - without a grant.
Eliminate finger or skip counting. Average 10 newly fluent facts/week. Free if you do the paperwork; $1/student/year if we do it. Watch the video below, or activate your Flash for Math Facts Pro to play the tour for yourself.
Time is valuable, so practice fluency wisely.
Not too boring, nor too frustrating. Just right. We aim for 90-95% fluency in practice to keep in the zone of proximal development. We track facts correct, not minutes spent in a chair. You will never see a wrong answer. Mastery is based on 9 out of the last 10 tries both correct and fast enough. Cut-off speeds are customized because some can count faster than others can automatically recall. We know which facts you need to focus on for maximum growth and use spaced repetition to move them to automaticity.See our research base & results

You’re paid to get results. So are we.
A study of over 1,400 users showed a direct correlation between practice on Math Facts Pro and fluency. Students who practiced less than 50 facts/week averaged a gain of 2.2 newly fluent facts/week, while those who practiced 250 facts/week (a five minute, 50 fact session for each of 5 days) gained 10.5 newly fluent facts/week, almost 5x as much! It isn’t just practice that gets you to Carnegie Hall, it’s effective practice.See our research and base and effectiveness study
Math facts practice can be tedious, so we make it more fun with joke videos. (Carefully screened by us.) We have also just launched our new highly focused video game, Mars Defense, because more practice = greater fluency, and more motivation = more practice (and less complaining). Being able to concentrate and beat a game while answering math facts without thinking about them is also a great way to practice for following along with a teacher’s higher level math instruction without having to think about the fact answers.
