Basic Facts and Computations: Building Fluency and Conceptual Understanding

Basic Facts and Computations: Building Fluency and Conceptual Understanding

Resource Type
Training Modules
Developed By
I3 Development Grant on Intensive Intervention in Mathematics

This module is focused on the foundational skills of basic facts and computations across elementary grade levels. This module reviews the math trajectories that lead to long-term success and mastery of facts. Mastery of facts will lead to deeper understanding of facts in order to complete multi-step computations.

The handout is available in PowerPoint format. A majority of the slides are the same, but the handout includes activities without the “answers” and case studies with space for participants to analyze and provide recommendations. It is recommended that the handout be printed with three slides per page to allow for participants to complete activities as the module is presented.
