Automaticity is the ability to effortlessly complete a task without thinking about it. When the brain recognizes a familiar task, such as computing a math fact, it automatically processes the information and applies what it has previously learned. This reduces the demand on memory and allows for higher order thinking. Automaticity of basic math facts is critical for success in mathematics. These resources can be used to motivate students to achieve this goal.
