### Using Literature to Make Sense of Math Operations

While many students are able to perform computations, some of those same students struggle when challenged to apply their computational skills to solve math problems. Rather than relying on...

MoreWhat can we do in the first weeks of school to set the stage for the coming year? Are there skills that may need revisited after the summer break? Is there information we’d like to gather about...

MoreWe recognize the power of reading a good story. But what might a good story bring to our math lessons? How might it enhance our teaching and spur student discovery? How might it support the...

MoreRather than a focus on memorizing teacher-taught algorithms to arrive at correct answers, today’s math standards focus on computational fluency, conceptual understanding, and application...

MoreWhy are math facts so important? Knowledge of basic math facts provides a foundation for multi-digit addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, but the importance of these facts goes far...
