Math Facts are essential to your childs success with mathematics. No matter what their style of learning no matter what your style of teaching, the goal for every student is the same.
They must end up knowing their facts, and more importantly, understanding them! If they dont know them, the result for every student is the same math problems!
It's time to start gathering the materials you need to help your child slow down or stop the Math Summer Slide. Start with this resource of daily math facts practice.
Do you know what we mean when we refer to Math Facts?

All the Free Printable Math Fact sheets you require for K-6 Mathematics are available by subject area. As there is one download per subject area please note that a 3rd Grade student will not know all these facts. A 6th grader should know them all, and a Kindergartner will only know a small portion.

Math Fact Sheets are sometimes referred to as Cheat Sheets. I think this is unfortunate, as it brings negative connotations with the name.
I think if your kid uses cheat sheets as a crutch for a while it's fine. With use, these rules and facts will become intuitive and they will no longer need the Math Fact Sheets.
I say, print them off, and let them use them!
