At the beginning of each year, I heavily emphasize the mastery of basic skills. That said, I give a multiplication skills quiz each of the first four Fridays of the year, to determine if students have mastered (able to recite, from memory, in a matter of a few seconds) their multiplication facts up to the 12 table (more, if possible). I also review division; since they are inverses of each other, if one skill is mastered, the other has likely been as well. I want to share with you some resources to ensure success- take a look, share with others, and use as your need dictates!
