ATTEND ALL DATES: SEPT 23 | OCT 7 | OCT 21 | NOV 4

Target Audience:  K-8 Math Teachers

The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics’ Principles to Actions (2014) states that effective teaching builds fluency with procedures on a foundation of conceptual understanding so that students become skillful in using these procedures flexibly as they solve contextual problems. This implies that fluency in mathematics goes beyond using basic facts or implementing algorithms. Real fluency involves understanding strategies necessary to becoming flexible, accurate and efficient problem solvers.

In this book study, participants will learn how to build a strong foundation for procedural fluency, Seven Significant Strategies, the role of automaticity in the strategies and how to provide quality fluency practice to assess beyond accuracy.

The Figuring Out Fluency books are grant funded and will be provided to all participants to use for this book study. Please see below for dates and chapters that will be discussed on each date.
September 23: Chapters 1 and 2
October 7: Chapter 3
October 21: Chapters 4 and 5
