Improving Basic Multiplication Fact Recall for Primary School Students
Wong, Monica; Evans, David
Mathematics Education Research Journal, v19 n1 p89-106 2007
This study implemented a multiplication program based on systematic practice, aimed at improving children's recall of basic multiplication facts. Four Year 5 classes were recruited to participate in the study. Two classes practised multiplication facts using pencil and paper worksheets and another two classes practised on computers. Eleven practice sessions (each of 15 minutes duration) were conducted over a four week period. Both groups increased their recall of basic multiplication facts and maintained the increase for at least 4 weeks after the termination of the program. Implications for mathematics instruction, and for the overall development of mathematical proficiency, are discussed. (Contains 4 tables and 2 figures.)
