On October 13, Heinemann author Sue O'Connell hosted Elementary Math Chat (#ElemMathChat) on Twitter. The focus of the conversation was on helping students move math facts beyond memorization only. Some of the questions discussed were:
- What criteria do you look for when choosing activities to promote math fact fluency?
- How can you help students see the link between facts like 9 x 2 and 2 x 9?
- What is the benefit of exploring math facts through real contexts?
Below is the full Storify of the chat.
