Pequea Math Facts Challenge

Pequea Families,

We are excited to announce the Pequea Math Challenge! Each report card envelope has information on the math facts challenge for Pequea Elementary School.

Knowing basic math facts, in addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division (depending on grade-level) are an important part of a child’s success in math. This summer, we encourage you to help your child learn their math facts.

Here are a few important tips:

  1. Stay positive as you engage with your child- try to make it fun.
  2. Take on the work in chunks. Our memory works in bite size chunks so as your child practices, focus in on a set of problems until he or she has them down- then move on to the next set of problems.
  3. Help your child learn what he or she knows and does not know, then focus on learning the material that is not already mastered.
  4. Practice verbally sometimes- no paper or pencil necessary.
  5. For more tips and resources, please check out the following links:

At the end of September, the students will take math facts assessments so we can see how much their summer practice benefitted them. Students who achieve the grade-level goal will participate in a school reward for their hard work and efforts. Administering the assessments at the end of September will allow students additional time at the beginning of the school year to practice their math facts.

These are the skills the students should work on over the summer:

  • Incoming kindergarten – oral counting 0-20 and identifying 1-10 in print (untimed).
  • First grade – adding numbers 0 – 5 (5+3 or 6+0, for example). They will have 90 seconds to do 20 problems.
  • Second grade – addition and subtraction problems with numbers 0-9. They will have 90 seconds to do 20 addition problems and 90 seconds to do 20 subtraction problems.
  • Third grade – addition and subtraction problems (8+6 or 15-7, for example). They will have 60 seconds to do 20 addition problems and 60 seconds to 20 subtraction problems.
  • Fourth grade – addition and subtraction problems (8+6 or 15-7, for example) and basic multiplication facts. They will have 60 seconds to do 20 addition problems, 60 seconds to do 20 subtraction problems, and 60 seconds to do 20 multiplication problems.
  • Fifth grade – addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division facts (such as 6+7, 18-9, 4X9, or 35÷7, for example). They will have 60 seconds to do 20 addition problems, 60 seconds to do 20 subtraction problems, 60 seconds to do 20 multiplication problems, and 60 seconds to do 20 division problems.
  • Sixth grade – addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division facts. They will have 60 seconds to do a sheet of 20 addition and subtraction problems (mixed) and 60 seconds to do a sheet of 20 multiplication and division problems (mixed).

Our goal is to build students success and confidence with basic math facts. We hope you and your family have fun practicing math this summer!
