Math Basecamp is intended for students who have already established a foundational knowledge of number sense and fact strategies. The purpose of Basecamp is for students to gain fact mastery of addition and subtraction and/or multiplication and division facts.

Math Basecamp should not be used for students who struggle with initial facts such as their zeroes and ones.

The implementation of Math Basecamp is flexible based on your classroom needs. You do not need to set aside dedicated time within your math lessons to have students engage in Basecamp.

Here are some suggestions for ways to incorporate Math Basecamp in your daily classroom routines:
