Rocket Math – Learn Math Facts!
Rocket Math is a supplemental learning program that teaches students addition,
subtraction, multiplication, division, and fractions. Specifically, the program teaches math facts–the basic building blocks of all math.
Students learn using printable worksheets and verbal partner practice, or through an Online Game with programmed feedback. Both methods only take a few minutes a day and can greatly increase your child’s success with math.
Who is Rocket Math for?
Any student who cannot instantly tell you the answer to 9 plus 7, 15 minus 8, 6 times 7, or 6 divided into 54 needs Rocket Math!
Rocket Math works great for:
- After-school enrichment programs
With the paper-and-pencil Worksheet Program you print out and assign a careful sequence of worksheets. Students practice saying facts aloud while a partner corrects. After practice students take a one-minute test daily to see if they are ready for you to give them the next worksheet. With the the Online Game the computer provides immediate corrections and times student responses for fluency. The computer moves students along only when they are at mastery. Teacher intervention is not required for students to learn.
Yes. Well sort of, but not fully. You need to have an Online Game admin account so you can enable, manage and monitor the Rocket Math app for students. Your admin account is where you set up student login credentials for the app (whether for one student seat or 5,000). Set up an initial complimentary subscription (which Dr. Don will extend by request) and see if you like it. Then go back into your Account/Payment/Renew page to pay $1 to $4 for a year’s subscription per student seat. Students go to play.rocketmath.com to enter their login credentials (which you create for them) to play the game on the app. They can also link to Apple or Google Play and download the app there.
- Students learn 4 facts on each worksheet in a carefully controlled sequence which enables mastery at an individualized pace.
- Students practice orally with a partner every day.
- One minute timings assess when students are ready to move to the next set of facts.
Tutors and Homeschoolers!

The two programs together work better!
Using the Online Game alongside the Worksheet Program we were able (for the first time!!) to test students out of multiplication into division and beyond. Using the two in conjunction with each other really helped!Rhonda C., Title 1 Math teacher, Stockton R-I Elementary, Stockton, MO
Happy I changed from Xtra Math
Tammy S. Middle school Intervention teacher, Somerset, WIMy students are loving this program. I was using Xtra math, but now they are in love with Rocket Math!
Honestly, what child asks to practice math facts?!
My 7 year old daughter asks every single morning, “Can I do Rocket Math now?” We tried a bunch of other math programs but Rocket Math is exactly what I wanted: an app that would just teach math facts until they learned them by heart. My son, also 7, asked to try today.Suzanna G-C, Vermont home-schooling parent
Learned a lot in a little time
Tiffany Y, Canandaigua, NYMy 7 year old son did dread doing Rocket Math at first, becoming frustrated he couldn’t quite answer fast enough (still counting up). But now he enjoys the challenge and loves it when he passes off each level.
You are changing my son’s life, by building his confidence. I cannot thank you enough. You have provided us a proven and effective resource.
