1 FOCUS ON FLUENCY BRIDGING THE GAPS Regional Educational Laboratory (REL) Midwest and the Great Lakes West Comprehensive Center present Making Connections: Improving Mathematics Instruction and Interventions Within a Response to Intervention Framework Cathy Shide, 1Developed by Cathy Shide, Consultant

2 Goals for the Session Introduce the fluencies required at each grade level in grades K-12 as specified in the CCSSM Introduce the fluencies required at each grade level in grades K-12 as specified in the CCSSM Understand that balanced emphasis requires that teachers create opportunities for students to develop fluencies Understand that balanced emphasis requires that teachers create opportunities for students to develop fluencies Understand how to apply the research to develop fluency Understand how to apply the research to develop fluency 2Developed by Cathy Shide, Consultant

5 What is fluency? Fluent in the Standards means “fast and accurate.” It might also help to think of fluency as meaning the same thing as when we say that somebody is fluent in a foreign language: when you’re fluent, you flow. Fluent isn’t halting, stumbling, or reversing oneself.

6 Fluency is related to “quickness”, but it is not just about time. It is about ease of use and confidence in proceeding. For fact fluency, it is about remembering facts with automaticity. Procedural fluency is related to things you do “without having to stop repeatedly to determine next steps.” It enables students to get to application, problem solving, and increased complexity much faster. It facilitates the development of deeper understanding. Fluency helps students access their answers through different vantage points. 6Developed by Cathy Shide, Consultant

14 Math Wars A player takes two cards and adds the numbers and records the sum. Next player repeats this process during his turn The player with the highest sum gets the cards. Continue play until all cards are done. See which player has the most cards. Make Adjustments to this game! 14Developed by Cathy Shide, Consultant

Models of proficient problem solving, verbalization of thought processes, guided practice, corrective feedback, and frequent cumulative review Instruction during the intervention should be explicit and systematic.... Models of proficient problem solving, verbalization of thought processes, guided practice, corrective feedback, and frequent cumulative review 20Developed by Cathy Shide, Consultant

21 Recommendation 5 Intervention materials should include opportunities for students to work with visual representations of mathematic ideas and interventions should be proficient in the use of visual representations of mathematical ideas. Intervention materials should include opportunities for students to work with visual representations of mathematic ideas and interventions should be proficient in the use of visual representations of mathematical ideas. 21Developed by Cathy Shide, Consultant

22 Recommendation 6 Interventions at all grade levels should devote about 10 minutes in each session to building fluent retrieval of basic arithmetic facts. Interventions at all grade levels should devote about 10 minutes in each session to building fluent retrieval of basic arithmetic facts. – K-2 efficient counting – 2-8 = knowledge of properties of arithmetic (page 90 of CCSSM) 22Developed by Cathy Shide, Consultant

23 Recommendation 7 & 8 Monitor the progress of students receiving supplemental instruction and other students who are at risk. Monitor the progress of students receiving supplemental instruction and other students who are at risk. Include motivational strategies in tier 2 and tier 3 interventions Include motivational strategies in tier 2 and tier 3 interventions – Allow students to chart their progress and to set goals for improvement. 23Developed by Cathy Shide, Consultant
