How often have you thought (or said), “I wish I knew how to teach math facts so that my students learn them and really remember them instead of just memorizing something for a test,” when talking about teaching math? For elementary learners, every math teacher works to build fluency as part of instruction, but what are the key principles to build fact fluency and how can you implement them? What’s essential in the strategies you choose and the approach you take to practice the road to fluency?

In the second part of this four-part edWebinar series, Sara Delano Moore, Ph.D. builds on the principles and strategies to help students build proficiency in the addition and subtraction facts. You leave this session with practical knowledge and strategies for:

  • Using the doubles and make ten strategies and how to use them with your students
  • Having a plan to extend both strategies to further your students’ fluency and flexibility
  • Understanding when to use each of the addition/subtraction strategies covered

Join Sara for part two of Fact Fluency Boot Camp so you can foster fact fluency with addition and subtraction strategies. This recorded edWebinar is of interest to PreK through elementary teachers and school and district leaders.

Part 1: Fact Fluency Boot Camp: Fact Fluency Principles and Addition and Subtraction Strategies
Part 3: Fact Fluency Boot Camp: Fact Fluency Principles and Multiplication and Division Strategies
Part 4: Fact Fluency Boot Camp: Multiplication and Division Strategies; Tying It All Together
