Numerical fluency is about understanding, not memorization. It comes over time as students engage in active thinking and doing, not endless worksheets and timed tests. Classroom instruction and materials, however, often don't feel aligned with these realities. "Students do not develop numerical fluency by memorizing and regurgitating rules." But many of us learned mathematics in exactly this way, making shifting our instruction challenging.

In Developing Numerical Fluency, Steve Leinwand takes a fresh look at a commonly-asked question: "How do I teach number facts so my students know them fluently?" Developing Numerical Fluency provides just the right support, offering big ideas for rethinking instruction paired with classroom-tested activities you can use right away.

This session is based on Developing Numerical Fluency; Making Numbers, Facts, and Computation Meaningful by Patsy Kanter and Steven Leinwand.

This session is being offered twice; please only sign up for one of the two sessions.
