Room: 401

Teaching Addition and Subtraction Fact Fluency—But with Understanding Rather than Gimmicks!
(Pre-K through Grade 2)

Click here to download the handout from this session.

Fluency is more than memorization of isolated basic facts. Students need to see connections between facts. They need visual models to help form a ‘mind picture’ that connects to a thinking strategy. This session will utilize easy-to-make visual aids and games that help students master the basic addition and subtraction facts—with understanding!

Early Learning: Cultivating Effective Student Discourse to Enhance Mathematical Understandings
(Pre-K through Grade 2)

When we are born, we hear mysterious sounds and try to make sense of them. For children, the same is true for mathematical vocabulary. In this session, you will dive into the early learning classroom and see how the language of math is cultivated and honored, and how children catapult themselves to success through the art of communication.

Strategies, Models, and Games That Promote Fact Fluency in Multiplication and Division
(Grades 3–5)

Click here to download the handout from this session.

Students will gain greater understanding of basic multiplication facts when they conceptualize them using real-world examples, visual models (arrays), and connecting them through practice and games. Participants will use these strategies and powerful visual models coupled with effective games to promote fluency of multiplication and division facts.
