Mrs. Van Der Geest’s Math Facts

All 6th grade students are REQUIRED TO KNOW their multiplication facts from 0 x 0 to 12 x 12 Quickly.  Students will be given timed tests since knowing these quick facts is essential to success in math.  As the year progresses, timed division tests will be given. Below is a chart you may print

A little facts about me…I grew up in Hawaii, where I met my husband. We have since relocated to Chelsea, Alabama, moving here in 2005. I enjoy exercising with friends, hiking, and raising my Golden Retrievers.  Both of my children (Carrie and Zakary) graduated from Chelsea High School and have since graduated from college.
