Capstone Project Title
<-- Please Select One -->
The retention of math facts is a critical step when it comes to solving mathematical equations. The website I designed for my project addresses this topic. It focuses on giving students, teachers and parents the research, tips and resources they need to be successful. Research shows that automaticity with math facts can lessen the academic load of students and also be a predictor of future math success. Using strategies such as interleaving, engaging with manipulatives and learning mnemonic devices has been shown to positively affect one’s recall of basic facts. However, drilling and mindless repetition has a much more negative effect. I took this research and more and displayed it on a website, for my three different audiences to interact with and benefit from. The goal of my project is to give tangible support to students, teachers and parents as they play their role in the fact memorization process.
