Educators will learn how to access supportive resources from the College Board, the state and county that they can incorporate into their daily lessons. Participants will have time at the end of the day to create a plan to implement these new strategies throughout the year. Attendees should plan to have access to their current curriculum and pacing guides.

    Principles and Standards for School Mathematics states, “Computational fluency refers to having efficient and accurate methods for computing. Students exhibit computational fluency when they demonstrate flexibility in the computational methods they choose, understand and can explain these methods, and produce accurate answers efficiently. The computational methods that a student uses should be based on mathematical ideas that the student understands well, including the structure of the base-ten number system, properties of multiplication and division, and number relationships” (p. 152). Join us for this evening workshop where we will explore evidence based practices that will increase computational fluency with your grade 3-5 students.
