FactsFirst (Saxon Homeschool)

image FactsFirst is an online math program published by Saxon Homeschool (but is not specific to the Saxon Math program)  that drills students in basic math facts—addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.  It is a colorful, engaging program that Emily enjoyed using. After the student completes several drills and a quiz, then he or she earns five minutes of arcade time (math games). The student (or parent) is able to choose which groups of facts to work on during each practice session. (I had Emily concentrate on her multiplication 12’s and her division facts.)

It is easy to measure your student’s progress through use of the math fact matrix, which labels the mastery of every fact as “excellent,” “good,” or “needs work.”

 

I recommend this program for efficient, yet fun math fact drill—much more fun than flash cards!  An online one-year subscription to factsfirst costs $49.99 and includes up to 4 student accounts.

I received a 90 day subscription to factsfirst in exchange for my honest review.
