Announcing FactsWise E-Courses!

I'm delighted to announce that you can now learn all about FactsWise through online e-courses for both addition/subtraction and multiplication/division. These e-courses include all of the information from the two-day FactsWise workshops, as well as additional classroom videos and in-depth insights into the lessons and strategies that we just don't have time for in the workshops.  (

If you're a teacher who wants to learn a bit more about FactsWise before you decide to enroll in the course, you'll be able to access the introductory chapter for free to see what it's all about. If you're a teacher who'd love to attend the two-day workshop but are a bit too far away from southern California to make it happen -- this online course is designed to help you transition to a simple approach to facts fluency development that time after time has had remarkable results. (

If you're a teacher who's been introduced to FactsWise from a team member and you want to get a full understanding, this course is for you. Many teachers just like you have told me that they felt so much more confident about building their students' flexible number sense and facts fluency once they had a more in-depth understanding of the principles behind FactsWise. (

And if you're a teacher who's been to a FactsWise workshop and you want to get a refresher or see it in action, this course is for you too! You'll be able to see many more video clips online than I could ever show during the workshops, and there are a number of bonus downloads you'll be able to access through the course. (

Of course, I'd be delighted to meet you in person at a two-day FactsWise workshop -- which are offered in the fall through both the Santa Barbara County Education Office as well as the Orange County (California) Department of Education. And if you attend one of these workshops, you'll get a special coupon to access the online course as well.

I'm happy to announce that the FactsWise Addition/Subtraction course is completed. The introductory module is completely free and will give you a strong overview of the approach and implementation research behind FactsWise. You can find it at

With more than a third of the FactsWise Multiplication/Division lessons already available to you, that course is currently just $24.95 - which gives you unlimited access to the entire course as it is completed. As the course moves closer to completion, the price for new users will increase to $49.95, and then $99.95 when fully completed -- which is projected to happen by early 2018. (

Please feel free to share this with other teachers you think might be interested -- I'd love for you and your colleagues to be able to take advantage of these courses!

(Oh, and if you're looking for additional college credits, keep checking this blog. As soon as I've finalized the arrangements, I'll let you know how to earn credit for completing either the online courses or the in-person workshops!)
