Multiplication and division fact families are a set of four related math facts that use the same three numbers. For example: The fact family for 3, 5 and 15 is a set of two multiplication facts and two division facts.

  • 3 x 5 = 15
  • 5 x 3 = 15
  • 15 ÷ 3 = 5
  • 15 ÷ 5 = 3

The fourth graders in Ms. Falnary’s Title I math class at Ryan Academy have been working on multiplication and division fact families.

 

Students use Reflex Math the first few minutes of class to improve fact fluency.
