MATH DITTOS 2: Fact Controlled MULTIPLICATION for Special Learners is a unique, freeware tool for teaching multiplication. It is a sequential, ground up, approach to multiplication with fact support, much like a controlled vocabulary in reading. Each page includes fact bars which present only the facts to be used on the page. Both special learners and regular education students benefit from its thorough and systematic approach.

FCM 63FCM 63 KeyNinety-nine blackline masters comprise the basic package. Each page contains a factstrip or factbar presenting and previewing the facts to be used on the page. Worksheets follow a logical and thorough progression through the operation of multiplication computation. A matched full-size set of ninety-nine complete answer sheets is also included. Sub-answers are always included, so teachers may do what they've been trained to do: diagnose and teach.

Additional support pages include:

• Grid overlays on two and three-digit multiplier problems to help students organize their answers.
• "No Fact" pages employing restricted facts, but no fact bars.
• Speed Drill Worksheets: Twenty-one pages of fact drills include single and multiple-fact pages that parallel the fact progression in MD2.
• Small flash card masters are included for duplication and student use. These are just the right size to fit in a pocket and stand at least a 50-50 chance of actually making it home with your students.
• Large flash card masters, ideal for in-front-of-the-class drill.
