Developing fluency in maths

Screen Shot 2015-03-22 at 7.46.32 pm

Thinking about the working mathematically components of the NSW K-6 Mathematics Syllabus, I am challenged by the notion of fluency and the ways teachers can support the development of fluency in their students. At a recent Teacher Professional Learning TRIO shared some card games for building mathematical fluency.  Name that number, in particular, interested the teachers who were present. This game develops fluency through applying different numerical operations. So, at their request, we have added our version of this card game for maths. This game and variations of it are suitable for students in stages two and three. Click here to find the instructions for this game.

  1. Hi Jenny
    Loved your courses on Maths and English this week and particularly the name that number game. How often we forget that these simple games are such a great ‘hook’ to start a lesson!
    PS yes we do read your Blog!!:)
