#11849 K-6 Math Fluency through Classroom Routines

Fluency has become a hot topic in the world of math education as more and more math teachers get frustrated by students who do not know their basic math facts. But what exactly is “math fluency” and how do we help our students develop it? Join us as we go beyond traditional timed tests to explore math fluency in meaningful ways.

In this workshop, participants will investigate the definition of “fluency” in math education and learn about how students develop fluency in basic math facts as well as more complex mathematical concepts. Then, participants will discover how teachers can best support their students in developing fluency through simple, consistent classroom routines and intentionally supportive language.

Bring laptop or tablet to access math resources online during the presentation.

#11843 Hands-On Math for K-8: Most of your Classroom Resources

Hands-on experiences with concrete, physical objects can have a significant impact on student understanding of mathematic concepts. This workshop will demonstrate several ways that common classroom manipulatives and other household items can help mathematics come alive in your classroom. As we know, hands-on experiences can bring a deeper understanding to mathematics. Janet is very passionate about the Standards for Mathematic Practices and the long-term positive impacts that those “math practices” can have on student learning and personal growth.
