Does your child have problems remembering math facts?   Here is a simple system derived from the Scripture Memory System to help improve your child’s memory one day at a time.

First you would need to gather your materials.

Math Memory System Materials

Setting Up Dividers

Next, you would set up your dividers.  Labeling them Daily, Even, Odd, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.  You would then label the remaining cards from 1 – 31.

Creating Your Index Cards

Third, you would create your index cards. Your index cards would have the math facts that you need your child to remember.  For example, the multiplication tables.

The most important thing to remember about the Math Memory System is that your child needs to create the index cards!  The process of actually writing down the facts will help your child as they are learning it so don’t write down the facts for them.  Help make sure it is correct but let THEM do it.

How it Works

Finally, after you have created your index cards, put the first set under the DAILY tab and review that until it is memorized.  After it is memorized, place a check and move it back to the EVEN or ODD tab (you choose one or the other).  Once one set of index cards is moved back and the DAILY divider is free, move a new fact into it’s slot.  I explain this further in the video found here https://youtu.be/KiSnWho_3wc .

Every day you will review index cards from the DAILY divider, EVEN/ODD divider, DAYS OF THE WEEK divider (SUN, MON, TUES, WED, THURS, FRI, SAT), and DATES OF THE MONTH divider (1, 2, 3, 4, … 31).   This is a total of 4 math facts reviewed each day.  So if today is Monday, September 17 you would read the index cards behind the DAILY divider, the ODD divider since 17 is an odd number, the MON divider since today is Monday and the 17 divider since today is the 17th.  When you first begin, you will not have index cards under all these dividers but you will build up to it.

Watch and Learn

Sometimes seeing it is better than reading it so watch this video to learn more: https://youtu.be/KiSnWho_3wc.
