Day 1

The aim of the number facts learning tools are to improve your recall of facts so that you can use them to solve problems. The tools work by first finding out the facts that you know and then teaching you facts that you don’t know.  

  • Go to the number facts pathway in e-ako maths.
  • Choose the multiplication and division learning tool.
  • Click “Check 1s, 2s, 5s, and 10s” and answer the questions. The green ticks show you the facts you know.
