100 facts

I teach third grade and give 5 minutes for 100 facts for add/sub/multiplication/division

I would think 2 minutes is enough time for the 5th graders.

Free Math Worksheets

Scroll down and there are timed multiplication sheets. I use them and the kids really like them. I do them often and try to have them beat their previous #.

3 grade teacher does it like I do. If 3rd graders can do 100 in 5, I would think fifth graders should be able to do 40 in 2 minutes. Good luck!

Multiplication fact quiz

Hi,
In our district my fifth graders are required to pass a multiplication timed test with 60 problems in 3 minutes with no more than 3 wrong.
Therefore 40 problems should take no more than 2 minutes.

Focus on Improving

I would give them 1 minute for 40 problems. I teach fifth grade and give 2 minutes for 100 problems. I make it clear that I do not expect them to be at 100 yet! But, every day they should be improving their score. I celebrate the students that improve their score by at least 10 problems over one day. They love the challenge, I can't wait to see how much they have improved by studying their facts over the weekend!

I remember we had to do 100 correct in 3 min. What have the schools come to these days? No wonder the children are getting into trouble in class they are bored!!!

Allowed time for multiplication drills

I teach third grade and I give 2 minutes for mult./div./add/sub. I think this is sufficient time. The should know them fluently and that is the reason I give 2 minutes.

Have a nice day.
