Videos, games, and books for memorizing addition & subtraction facts

This page lists videos and games you can use to help your child to learn and memorize the basic addition and subtraction facts. Memorizing these facts is one of the focus topics of 1st and 2nd grade math.

Videos

The following videos use fact families to help children learn the facts within 0-10 (first grade math). Each video shows all the fact families with the sum of that particular number, organized into a table. Seeing the facts within a pattern, within a structure, helps develop number sense and helps children in the memorization work.

I don't personally like to only use "brute force" memorization techniques such as flash cards, but also include strategies and show the child patterns. (Flash cards are fine as one tool among many, but I wouldn't rely on them as the MAIN means of memorization.)

Each video also includes a drill and other types of exercises and problems.

Addition and subtraction facts with 7 (fact families)

Addition and subtraction facts with 8 (fact families)

Addition and subtraction facts with 9 (fact families)
