The resources in this collection help students develop fluency with number facts. These resources strive to deepen mathematical thinking, develop problem solving, and encourage reasoning and strategic thinking. They take advantage of patterns and number sense. By employing a variety of strategies and representations, they help students make connections, thereby improving retention and transferability. Additional resources for educators can be found in a companion Professional Development collection, "Developing Fact Fluency."
This professional development collection supports teachers as they learn to use problem solving as a vehicle for teaching mathematics. Resources include video clips from actual classrooms, articles that relate helpful techniques and strategies, and several online courses that help teachers to advance problem-solving with their classes. This collection supports Practice Standard 1 and the Problem Solving Process Standard.
