Basic math facts can be of two types; the addition facts and the multiplication facts. Addition facts use addition and subtraction, while multiplication facts use multiplication and division. We encourage kids to learn and use the both kinds of math facts.
Math facts worksheets are given in this site as an aid to division worksheets. So, must visit the math fact page of the site.
Let's talk about the addition facts and families, first. Very easy to understand, once kids know the basic addition and subtraction, then they can learn addition and subtractions facts easily. The order of learning division may be; to learn math facts, then basic division using basic division lessons and worksheets, then to learn the long division.
Hence, the math facts are the first step towards learning division. Therefore, on this page we will explore the math facts. You can find key lessons and examples followed by the math facts worksheets on this page.
Math Facts - Addition & subtraction
Let's start with addition and subtraction math facts first. As said earlier, if kids know how to add or subtract, they can find the addition and subtract facts easily. We put all the facts in a fact family.
For example; consider numbers 3, 5 and 8 we can attach these numbers using the addition facts.
First Addition Fact: 3 + 5 = 8
Second Addition Fact: 5 + 3 = 8
Third Addition Fact: 8 - 3 = 5
Fourth Addition Fact: 8 - 5 = 3
Above is the addition fact family of numbers 3, 5 and 8. In the above family, the top 2 facts are known as addition facts and bottom two facts are called the subtraction facts.
Multiplication facts and division facts - Lessons and worksheets:
Once kids know the addition and subtractions facts, the next stop is to learn multiplication and division facts. As addition and subtraction are inverse math operations, similarly multiplication and division are the inverse of each other. So, multiplication facts make kids ready for the division and then they can use our division worksheets to get perfect on this math skill. For example, let's write the multiplication and division facts for the numbers 4, 5 and 20. The facts family for these numbers is given below:
Once kids get addition and multiplication facts (all the math facts), then they are ready to learn division. After learning division, practice this skill using division worksheets. We have included both types of division lessons and worksheets:
Wish all the kids a good luck in their studies and lives!
