### Fact Family Home Worksheets 1 of 14

Fact family homes how learners with making connections between reciprocal facts and division. For instance, when a child knows 7 x 9 is 63, they need to have quick recall that 9 x 7 is 63 and that 63 ÷ 7 = 9 and that 63 ÷ 9 = 7. Although this might just seem like common sense now, it's not so much to a young learner and children need exposure to the connections and they need to make these connections when working with the basic facts which are often referred to as the fact families.

When is a learner ready for Fact Family Homes?

A learner should be able to add facts to 100 and should understand that multiplication is a specific number of groups, for instance, 3 x 5 means that there are three groups of five. They should have some exposure to the times tables. Students won't necessarily have committed the multiplication facts to memory prior to doing worksheets like these.

Another way to practice this concept is to give the learner two numbers and ask them to build their fact families. For instance: 3 and 4. The learner then says, I know 3 x 4 is 12 and that 4 x 3 is 12 and that 12 ÷ by 3 is 4 and that 12 ÷ by 4 is 3. This concept can and should be practiced orally as well.
