Weekly Timed Math Test

We are working hard on knowing our addition and subtraction facts to 12. It is important that each student know these facts entering 2nd grade by memory. A student should be able to answer a math fact within 3 seconds.


We are taking 4 timed test a week. Each test has 20 to 24 problems. These will be graded at the end of each week. The test consist of a mixture of addition and subtraction problems. The students are currently given 2 minutes to complete each test, which is double the time. Please work with your child at home on memorizing these facts.


I have listed the link to FACT DASH below. The students play this every week in the library. They need to choose mixed problems and change the time to one minute.
