# What is Fact Practice?

The Fact Practice component of Freckle allows students to do just that: practice their math facts. Students build math fact fluency by testing their ability to recall the basic facts in all four operations, accurately and quickly. Think of Freckle Fact Practice as computerized, adaptive flash cards.

Students can practice their math facts up to twice a day.

Once on the Fact Practice screen, students can select the first box and solve the first fact by using the number keys to enter their answer. Selecting the **Enter** or **return** keys on the keyboard to submit each answer will move them through Fact Practice. There is no need to select each box.

Students earn coins for correct answers, just as they do in the Independent Practice program. The coin amounts are randomized and are in no way associated with the difficulty of the fact. Students gain immediate feedback after answering each math fact and are shown correct solutions if they answer incorrectly.

*What math operations will a student see in Fact Practice?*

The default behavior for Fact Practice depends on a student's grade level.

**Kâ2:**Addition and Subtraction**3â5:**Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, and Division**6â12:**Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, and Division with Positive and Negative Integers

Students will begin with simple examples of each operation. They can "level up" each operation by scoring 100% for three sessions in a row. If a student scores less than 60% on an operation, their next session will have a simplified set of questions for that operation. For example, a student who does well on Addition and Subtraction questions but scores low on Multiplication questions will have their Multiplication complexity reduced.

Students will not "unlock" new operations by advancing in a different one. For example, a 2nd-grade student cannot independently move to Multiplication and Division by reaching the highest level of Subtraction.

This document details the specific progression of each Fact Practice operation.

*How can I change which operations a student is working on?*

The operations a student sees can be changed if a teacher assigns Fact Practice to a student directly. If it is the first time a student has done Fact Practice, then the operations they are assigned will become their "default." For example, if a 5th-grade student is assigned Addition and Subtraction for their first-ever Fact Practice session, those operations will be all they see in future independent sessions.

If a student has already been using Fact Practice independently, a teacher using the Premium version of Freckle can assign them a new operation and it will begin showing up in their independent sessions as well. For example, a 2nd-grade student who is assigned Multiplication will see Addition, Subtraction, and Multiplication from then on. The ability to change operations is not available for users of the Free version of Freckle.

*How can I fit Fact Practice into my daily schedule?*

The most common way Fact Practice is incorporated into the math block as part of the independent practice program. Fact Practice can also be done as part of the Daily Review, be incorporated into math centers, or be assigned as nightly homework. Since Fact Practice is relatively quick, students can practice any time they have a few minutes to jump on a computer or iPad.
