New Website Launch

The new Factivation!® for Multiplication website is set to be launched in February 2010.  New features will include a complete site redesign with subscription capabilities for both teachers and students.  The new student-centered "Fact Lab" will greatly improve the versatility of the program by allowing students to watch the instructional videos for the nine Factivation!® lessons both at school or at home using a unique username and password. Teachers will enjoy this functionality and the increased options for student practice.  Students' use of the Fact Lab should also expedite mastering the Multiplication facts.  We are excited to introduce the new Factivation!® for Multiplication to teachers and students this February.
