Build math fluency through
Math Talks & Number Strings
Our Math Fluency solution fills the fluency gap in today's math curriculum.
Math Fluency is a supplemental, daily math program that provides everything educators need to teach and reinforce multiple strategies that build number sense. The powerful combination of math fluency activities like 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
Use Math Talks to generate discussions about efficient, clever, and elegant strategies for the given problem and numbers.
Extend your Daily Math Fluency lessons
Hands-on student games and activities from the Daily Math Fluency Centers Kits reinforce and support new skills and strategies.
