Academic Minute - September 27, 2019

 Math Fluency

Highlights from this week's Academic Minute:

  • Procedural fluency is the ability to apply procedures accurately, efficiently, and flexibly.
  • One cannot stop with memorization of facts and procedures alone.  It is about recognizing when one strategy or procedure is more appropriate to apply than another.
  • Students need opportunities to justify both informal strategies and commonly used procedures through distributed practice.
