What is the order in which facts are presented during the practice sessions?

The order in which math facts are presented to students is personalized and adaptive, rather than following a fixed sequence. This adaptability is based on several factors:

  1. Student's Performance: Facts are presented considering how well a student has performed on them previously. If a student is consistently getting certain facts correct, those may be presented less frequently.
  2. Difficulty of the Facts: The program also takes into account the empirical difficulty of each fact. Easier facts (like x1 or x2 in multiplication) are typically introduced before more challenging ones (like x7 or x8).
  3. Progression and Mastery: As students demonstrate mastery of simpler facts, the program gradually introduces more complex ones. This progression ensures that the practice is aligned with the student's growing skill level.
  4. Randomization and Variety: While focusing on the student's needs and mastery level, the facts are also presented with a degree of randomization to ensure a varied and comprehensive practice experience.

Therefore, while there isn't a strict, universal order for fact presentation in XtraMath, the program's algorithm tailors the sequence to each student's learning pace and ability, prioritizing facts that require more practice and gradually building up to more complex ones as proficiency increases.

The Student Report allows teachers to check students' mastery of specific math facts. The report includes a color-coded matrix of all the facts related to the operation practiced, allowing the teacher to quickly identify which ones the student has mastered and which ones require further improvement.
