The 3 Steps to Math Fact Fluency

There are 3 Steps to Math Fact Fluency…

Step 1:

Cognitive Computation

This is the introductory step where teachers use manipulatives, games, activities, strategies and more to engage learners in arithmetic concepts including math facts.

Step 2:

Multi-Sensory Memorization

The use of visual, auditory and tactile cues engages all parts of the brain. Multi-sensory memorization prepares learners to store and recall math facts faster and easier.

Step 3:

Retrieve and Release

The retrieve and release step promotes the rapid recall of known facts. Practice that is targeted, distributed, and meaningful to the learner improves measurable outcomes.

While most schools address the first and the third steps, they often miss the second.
