    What is Djehuti Smart?

    Djehuti Smart is a Numeracy Program developed for in class and individual tuition to improve students recall of basic number facts.

    The Aim of the Djehuti Smart Numeracy Program is to improve accuracy and speed of recall for basic numeracy knowledge and facts that students already understand but cannot yet automatically recall.

    The Rationale for the Djehuti Smart Program is that students are better able to successfully engage with higher order tasks such as problem solving, when the limited capacity of their working memory is available to solve these tasks, rather than using the working memory to re-discover known basic number facts.

    The Goal of the Djehuti Smart Program is to improve speed of recall and accuracy in numeracy areas. Our continual graphing as an assessment tool highlights each student’s progress. This reinforces automaticity of basic number facts.

    The Objective of each lesson is to ensure that students have sufficient understanding to recall basic numeracy knowledge then to increase speed of recall and accuracy.

    The Instructional Methods used in the Djehuti Smart Program involve the use of:

    • flashcards with the challenge of improving one’s personal best of how many flashcard number facts can be correctly answer in one minute. These results are then graphed.
    • speedsheets with the challenge of improving one’s personal best of how many number facts can be correctly answered over two minutes. These results are also graphed.
    • problem solving with the use of worksheets and/or games that reinforce the strategies learnt.
