Tag Line: Building number sense one day at a time.
The site provides a number of estimation activities involving height, number of objects etc. The activities may include a photo or video to help students develop some reference to solve the activity. The answers are provided, but the idea is that students utilize their estimation skills to determine the appropriate answer.
The site also includes a blog, a relationship between some american common core standards and estimation activities, as well as information on clothesline math activities as well.

"This guide is intended to support teachers’ ongoing efforts in building students’ knowledge and skills in mathematics. It focuses attention on the content of expectations in The Ontario Curriculum, Grades 1–8: Mathematics, 2005 that deal with fundamental mathematics concepts and skills (specifically, expectations in the Number Sense and Numeration strand and expectations that relate to number properties in the Patterning and Algebra strand). The guide outlines steps to achieving the knowledge and skills described in these expectations and suggests how to make more timely connections that will better support student learning. A strong foundation in the concepts and skills emphasized here will prepare students for success in high school, and ensure that they have a set of essential skills for employment and responsible citizenship in the future."
There are excellent charts included that organize foundational skills by grade grouping. These charts start on page 5.

Students must think about the factors of each number as they play this game. Students quickly learn the value of selecting prime numbers as a strategy. The beauty of the game design is that students will review the factors of many numbers and mentally add the sum of these factors together in search of the "best move."

My goal for this year was to add math games to my repertoire of teaching strategies as part of my regular classroom routine. I looked at this as the first step to moving towards a guided math program. Also our PLT group was working on ways to increase the level of math fact knowledge in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. The Saskatchewan Curriculum recognizes that “mental mathematics is a combination of cognitive strategies that enhance flexible thinking and number sense. It is calculating mentally and reasoning about the relative size of quantities without the use of external memory aids. Mental mathematics enables students to determine answers and propose strategies without paper and pencil. It improves computational fluency and problem solving by developing efficiency, accuracy, and flexibility.” I also wanted to increase opportunities for communication and collaboration. Some of my math games involved building, creating and problem solving. Others involved competition and cooperation. I created a brochure that highlighted the favorite games of the students and it also provides links where teachers can find these games.

This is a full program to teach your students or children their multiplication facts!
If you follow the program carefully, most children will be solid on these facts in 2 weeks. HOWEVER, you cannot stop practicing once their facts are fluent. Students will continue to need to practice a few times a week to keep their speed and accuracy for a few months at least.
