Harvesting Good Thinking: Growing Basic Fact Strategies into General Reasoning Strategies

August 18, 2021

While teaching students strategies to become automatic with basic math facts may initially take more time, in the long run it will benefit students much more than memorization. When students learn strategies, they are more likely to retain their automaticity. And because these strategies are generalizable to whole numbers, fractions, decimals, and even integers and variable expressions, they will support mathematical fluency well beyond elementary school.

During this hour-long on-demand webinar Dr. Jennifer Bay-Williams, Mathematics Educator at the University of Louisville, shares:

  • Essential basic fact strategies for addition and multiplication
  • Significant reasoning strategies beyond basic facts for whole numbers, fractions and decimals
  • Games to harvest good thinking
  • Routines to harvest good thinking

 

Empower your students with a set of reasoning strategies that will help them develop fluency across K–8 standards.
