Building Computational Fluency: Multiplication & Division
Focus on: Grades 3 - 6
Course Number: TEED346N
When teachers understand how children make sense of multiplication and division, they are better able to create strategies that support students in developing computational fluency. Using student work samples and video clips, we will explore how children develop meaningful, efficient, and accurate computational strategies for multiplication and division. We'll examine mathematical ideas central to multiplication and division, thereby deepening mathematical content knowledge. Additionally, we'll analyze the role of the traditional algorithm in a standards-based elementary mathematics classroom.
