Multiplication Facts

***NEW - We are going to be taking a mixed multiplication test each Friday that will count as a quiz grade. Your child will need to be able to pass 50 problems of 3,4,6,7,8,9, and 12's in 3:00 minutes. After Christmas, the time will be reduced to 2:30 minutes.

*** I know this seems like a lot, but students MUST know their multiplication facts in 4th grade!
