## Math Fluency Kits fills the fluency gap in today’s math curriculum

Math Fluency Kits are a supplemental program that provides everything educators need to teach and reinforce multiple strategies that build number sense. The powerful combination of Math Talks and Number Strings improve a student’s ability to think about numbers flexibly, efficiently, and accurately—building a strong foundation of mathematical reasoning for future math success.

# How it Works

## Model Strategies

Use Number Strings to help students construct mental strategies and to systematically nudge them toward efficiency.

## Demonstrate Problem-Solving

Teachers use demonstration manipulatives to model how to solve a problem, which then becomes a tool for student thinking.

## Apply and Discuss

Through Math Talks generate discussions about efficient, clever, and elegant strategies for the given problem and numbers.
