Computational Fluency: Pathways to Student Engagement and Mathematical Success (Aug. 3-5)
- Maine Math and Science Alliance
- Other Educators
August 3-5, 2021 with additional collaborations in Fall 2021 (In-Person and Virtual)
Computational fluency can be an obstacle for many students, but it doesn’t need to be that way! By shifting away from memorization of discrete math facts to understanding the math relationships between these number combinations, students can bring their own understanding to the table, become better problem solvers, and develop the flexibility needed to become truly fluent with their math facts. This series will focus on building computational fluency through relevant and authentic grade-level contexts.
This series will begin with an engaging summer institute. Educators will dive into the learning and experience the research-based progression for developing fact fluency and computational fluency in grades K-8. As the school year begins, educators will continue to explore these topics while applying new understandings to their classrooms and reflecting with their cohort on successes and challenges.
