Recall of facts

Recall of facts

Recall of facts is a value of education which is to be de-emphasized in reform of science according to new national curriculum standards. Recall facts is often associated with rote learning.


According to "The Influence of the National Science Education Standards on the Science Curriculum" by James D. Ellis of the University of Kansas:

"Teaching for depth of understanding of important science concepts is preferred, rather than recall of science facts. Teaching less content in depth is better than covering too much content superficially."


By contrast, while the original 1989 NCTM math standards de-emphasized memorization of facts, the newest "focal points" re-emphasized that students should memorize basic addition and multiplication facts [ [ October 6, 2006 Educators take different routes to get back to the basics in math By Linda Shaw Seattle Times staff reporter] ] Newer editions of textbooks such as Everyday Mathematics stress that

"Helping children learn the basic facts is an important goal in the Everyday Mathematics Curriculum. Most children should have developed an automatic recall of the basic addition and subtraction facts by the end of the second grade. They should also know most of their 1, 2, 5, and 10 multiplication facts by this time. By the end of the fourth grade most students should have an automatic recall of all the basic multiplication facts and be familiar with the basic division facts. Multiplication and division facts are reinforced at the beginning of fifth grade." [ [] How does Everyday Mathematics address basic facts? ]
