Program Overview

This two-day workshop will help leaders lay the foundation for a coherent Mental Computation Program with a focus on the basic number facts (which include tables). Upper primary teachers and lower secondary teachers continually complain that students are not fluent with basic number facts. Schools need a coherent approach to the teaching, learning and assessing of these facts to ensure that most students are fluent. This program will help leaders examine the Fluency and Understanding Proficiency Strands of the Mathematics Curriculum. A general plan for developing computational fluency will be shared with participants. Note this program does not cover written computation methods, however students need to use basic facts and place value together to perform written calculation. Part of the course will focus on Place Value.

Content

  • Participants will examine the Understanding and Fluency Proficiency Strands of the Mathematics Curriculum with reference to number.
  • An overall mental computation approach will be explained.
  • The role of fluency and how to attain it will be outlined.
  • Assessment options will be provided.

Learning Outcomes

Participants will be able to:

  • Examine and review their current approach to teaching basic number facts and mental computation.
  • Assess students in their school to map areas of strength and weakness.
  • Develop a whole school plan to avoid gaps developing in student understanding of and fluency with basic number facts.
