Building Fact Fluency Through Virtual Storytelling
Presenter: Graham Fletcher
Date: January 19, 2021
When we ask students to memorize their facts, we are essentially asking them to memorize over 100 isolated equations. This approach doesn’t allow students to explore the relationships between numbers that are foundational to mathematics. In this session, we’ll explore the important role that context plays in developing fact fluency. By purposefully sequencing a series of tasks and activities through the same context, students can begin to make connections and develop an understanding that is scalable well beyond single digits.
Recommended Grade Level: K – 5
