This year, I have been tutoring two young home school students in Math and Science. Because they need help learning their math facts, I made a worksheet with macros in it in Excel that randomly gives them 100 multiplication problems at varying speeds.
The program first puts two numbers in the first two boxes and then shows the answer after a specified amount of time.
Here is a picture of the sheet:
The student can choose from four options:
Slower – gives them 3 seconds before showing the answer
Medium – two seconds before giving the answer
Harder – excludes the numbers 10 and 11
Instant – gives the answer at the same time as it puts the numbers up
Using this program, my goal is to get them to where they know well all their multiplication facts for 1 through 12 times 1 through 12.
Praise God for providing such useful features in Excel!
