The Phases of Learning Facts for Addition and Subtraction

Meaningful and effective learning of number facts involves three phases. Let's consider each in turn.  (continue reading)

Teaching for Authentic Fluency, Not Rote Memorization

Learning these facts is not about rote memorization. Seeing and using patterns, and building relationships, can free children’s cognitive resources to be used in other tasks.  (continue reading)

Math Fact Frenzy: Drills Do Not Lead to Fluency

What does it really take to help students learn their math facts in ways that allow them to access and use these facts fluently and flexibly to solve rich and challenging math problems?  (continue reading)

Heinemann is at NCSM & NCTM 2019!

This week, Heinemann will be in beautiful San Diego for the National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics (NCSM) and National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) conferences!  (continue reading)

Increase Opportunities for Talk in the Math Classroom

The more opportunities students have to practice using the language of mathematics through conversation, the deeper their understanding will be. As students engage in brief discussion, they have the chance to hear and practice providing explanations, multiple representations, and solutions.  (continue reading)

The Steps of A Math Conference

Conferring is built on learning what students are doing and how they are thinking. In the first stage of a math conference, the teachers looks, listens, and asks with the goal of building an interpretation of student thinking.  (continue reading)

Learning to Confer in Mathematics

How does a conference work? What do teachers think about? What do they say? A conference is not simply a venue for students to report on their thinking. A conference is a shared opportunity for teachers and students to learn together in the moment.  (continue reading)

How Games Help Build Numerical Fluency

Whether before school, embedded in the school day, after school, or at home, games offer engaging, active learning, and meaningful math practice. Here are some quick tips for successfully implementing math games!  (continue reading)

Allowing Struggle and Sense-Making in Mathematics

Struggle is how we learn. Rich tasks provoke productive struggle, during which students actively struggle through a problem as they work to make sense of it.  (continue reading)

The Foundations of Numerical Fluency

Understanding what the whole is, what the parts are, how they are related, and what might be missing in a particular problem are all critical aspects of numerical fluency.  (continue reading)
