FASTT Math:

The FASTT Math intervention program uses the research-validated FASTT system (Fluency and Automaticity through Systematic Teaching with Technology) to help all students develop fluency with basic math facts in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. FASTT Math assesses all students to uncover fluency gaps and to establish a baseline of fluency for each student. FASTT Math automatically differentiates instruction in customized, 10-minute daily sessions. FASTT Math ensures that all students, regardless of their fluency level, build the long-lasting fluency they will need to tackle higher-order math. Research has shown that students who log into and complete their FASTT Math lessons at least three times per week, are likely to be much more successful with their math skills. FASTT Math is designed for students at the 2nd grade level of math and above.


Fraction Nation:

Fraction Nation targets fractions and decimals, two of the most difficult concepts to teach and learn. Designed to develop the critical foundations of fraction fluency, conceptual understanding and procedural knowledge. Fraction Nation delivers fraction fluency through explicit instruction, extensive practice, and ongoing assessments. Fraction Nation guides students on a journey through 64 carefully crafted lessons to build a strong foundation in fractions and decimals, all in 15-minute lessons. Fraction Nation is designed for students at the 4th grade level of math and above.
