Abstract:
The purpose of the present study was to assess the effectiveness of Direct Instruction (DI) flashcards on improving the mastery of basic multiplication facts. Our participant was a fifth grade student attending a parochial school. Our participant was falling farther behind in his math and that is why he was selected to participate by his classroom teacher. The number of correct math facts was the dependent variable. Based on pre-testing three sets of math facts were devised. A multiple baseline design across sets was employed. The overall outcomes indicated large improvements in student performance when DI flashcards were used to teach our participant his math facts. The practicality and efficacy of employing DI flashcards was discussed. Our findings replicate several of our own studies employing DI flashcards to teach basic skills in math or reading.
