“I Scream” for Multiplication

     In third grade a very important Standard of Learning in Math is multiplication fact fluency. The third grade teachers are motivating students to learn these multiplication facts with ice cream. The third graders, starting with the 1’s facts, are required to answer 60 multiplication problems in 5 minutes with 100% accuracy. If they achieve proficiency, they will get a scoop on their ice cream cone and move on to the next times table. They will move through multiplication facts 1 to 12. When the student receives a perfect score on their 12’s multiplication table, all of their hard work will be rewarded with an ICE CREAM treat from the cafeteria!
