Limited Capacity seats available

Procedural fluency, which can be defined as the skill of performing mathematical procedures flexibly, accurately and efficiently, is one vital characteristic of a proficient mathematician, alongside conceptual understanding, the ability to solve problems, the capacity for logical thought and a productive disposition towards mathematics. This workshop will consider how each of these elements needs to be intentionally developed, and consider the specific characteristics of learning engagements which target procedural fluency as part of a balanced approach. The workshop will provide an opportunity to explore a range of resources and activities suitable for developing procedural fluency across the Primary grades and examine the rationale for identifying particular activities as a suitable for the intent of developing mathematical fluency.

Key Takeaways
  • Consider how a highly intentional focus on developing procedural fluency integrates with other aspects of a balanced maths programme
  • Examine the characteristics of learning engagements and activities suitable for developing procedural fluency at different ages and stages
  • Explore a collection of example learning engagements specifically collated to develop procedural fluency
