  • What is Factivation?
    Factivation!® is a compilation of the best tricks of the trade when it comes to Math facts. Familiar methods for Multiplication, like the Nines finger strategy, have been combined with new (and surprising!) tricks and chants to create a complete system that teaches every fact in the simplest, most brain-friendly way.

  • Who should use the program?
    Factivation!® is recommended for 1st-5th grades, as it covers basic Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, and Division facts: the foundation upon which all upper-level Mathematics instruction is built.

  • Does it work for all students?
    Factivation!® is being successfully used in special ed classrooms, regular ed classrooms, gifted classrooms, and in homes across the USA and abroad. Read our testimonials to see how your colleagues feel about its effectiveness. We regularly receive unsolicited testimonials from excited teachers and parents!

  • How many lessons are there?
    There are 9 Multiplication/Division lessons. Most contain only three Focus Facts for the student to master before proceeding to the next lesson. There are 12 Addition/Subtraction lessons. Previously learned facts are reviewed within each lesson and the commutative property is reinforced throughout, allowing fewer facts to be explicitly taught.

  • What is the cost?
    A basic Factivation!® teacher membership is $34.95/year and single home memberships are $19.95/year. It doesn’t have to cost a fortune to be effective! Visit our sample lessons and you’ll see what a great value this is!

  • What sets Factivation apart?
    Factivation!® was designed by a teacher to be a COMPLETE fact mastery solution fully addressing fluency, while also covering every other aspect of true mastery. Using our simple-to-follow four-part lesson progression, students first build a foundational understanding of the concept of the operation, then move into accuracy-building, fluency-building, and finally application of basic facts.

Factivation LLC

Factivation LLC began in December 2007. The founder, an Oklahoma classroom teacher, spent several years gathering, creating, and refining techniques that would effectively (and enjoyably) lead students to Multiplication mastery.

Factivation LLC was established after several years of design and classroom testing of its signature product, Factivation!® for Multiplication. Factivation LLC’s mission is to simplify both the learning and teaching of Math facts.

The teachers of Factivation LLC believe that mastery of basic Math facts, coupled with a well-developed conceptual understanding of each operation, is crucial to our students’ ability to develop not only mathematical competence, but mathematical confidence as well.

Lisa Kanaga, Creator

Lisa Kanaga has been an elementary educator for 16 years. During that time, she has taken on various roles as a classroom teacher, Title Math specialist, and instructional coach.

Mrs. Kanaga developed the Factivation!® for Multiplication program after teaching 3rd grade for several years and realizing the difficulties students had with mastering Multiplication facts. After a move to teach 5th grade, the negative impact of non-fluency became very apparent. Mrs. Kanaga was inspired to create a system that would simplify both the learning and teaching of Multiplication facts.

After years of development and testing, Factivation!® has now grown to include Division and Addition facts and is being successfully used in schools and homes across the USA and abroad.

The Real “Factuary Al”

Actuary Al
Actuary Al: incredible father, loving grandpa, and favorite uncle (otherwise known as Uncle Al, the Kiddie’s Pal) was the first actuary (not factuary) at his company. He earned a master’s degree in Mathematics and instilled his love of Math in his daughter, the Factivation!® creator.
[spacer] “Factuary Al” is a loving tribute to a respected and cherished father, Actuary Al.

Getting “Factivated”

Teachers bring their laptops and come together for a day of hands-on learning at the Factivation!® for Multiplication Workshop. Presenters Lisa Kanaga and Mike Dial are excited to share their success stories and show colleagues how to put the program to use in their own classrooms. Each teacher leaves the training fully equipped, with a year’s membership to the website.[spacer] Factivation workshop
