Developing computational fluency with fractions, decimals, and percent presents enormous challenges to both students and educators. This institute has been designed to help educators address these challenges. As part of this institute, we will explore the following questions:

  • What are the key strategies my students need to develop?
  • Is there a learning trajectory for the development of strategies (e.g., Are some strategies precursors to others?)?
  • How can students’ fluency in whole number be used to support the development of their computational fluency with fractions, decimals, and percent?
  • What mathematical routines and mini-lessons are best suited for developing computational fluency with fractions, decimals, and percent?
  • What role do mathematical models play in the development of computational fluency?
  • What pedagogical tools do I need in my repertoire to help me develop my students’ fluency?

This institute will also focus on how educators can use guided mini-lessons to develop their students' mental-math and paper/pencil strategies with rational number. Educators will have the opportunity to:

  • Plan and teach mental-math mini-lessons.
  • Examine specific pedagogical tools (e.g., use of questions and mathematical models) that support the development of students’ computational fluency.

Analyze student responses to think about ways to support their mathematical reasoning and ability to communicate that reasoning with precision and clarity.
