Once students have mastered all of their math facts, Basecamp provides a way for them to apply their knowledge. The Applications resources will challenge students to complete activities and games that encourage higher-order critical thinking skills while applying the math facts they have mastered.
Within the Math Basecamp, there are 20 Fluency Applications resources:
10 Resources for Addition/Subtraction
10 Resources for Multiplication/Division
Each Fluency Applications resource contains at least two hands-on activities that allow students to apply their math facts to higher-order problems requiring the use of mathematical reasoning.
In addition, most Fluency Applications resources include a Legends of Learning mini-game aligned to the focus skill of the resource.
To access the Fluency Applications resources, click on "Fluency Applications" under the blue Math Basecamp heading in the left hand navigation menu.
Then, use the Addition/Subtraction and Multiplication/Division tabs to find resources within the appropriate fact families.
There, you will find specific application skills with links to the corresponding lesson plan and/or mini-game.
To assign the mini-game, click the Game button, then select 'Get Link to Game'.
