Give each and every student the knowledge and power to become skilled and confident mathematical thinkers and doers.

Fluency in mathematics is more than adeptly using basic facts or implementing algorithms. It is not about speed or recall. Real fluency is about choosing strategies that are efficient, flexible, lead to accurate solutions, and are appropriate for the given situation. Developing fluency is also a matter of equity and access for all learners.

The landmark book Figuring Out Fluency in Mathematics Teaching and Learning offered educators the inspiration to develop a deeper understanding of procedural fluency, along with a plethora of pragmatic tools for shifting classrooms toward a fluency approach. Now, teachers have the chance to apply that inspiration through explicit instruction and practice every day with the classroom companion Figuring Out Fluency: Operations With Rational Numbers and Algebraic Equations.

With this 232 page book, teachers can:
• Dive deeper into the Significant Strategies for fluency explained in the anchor book as they apply to rational number operations

• Explore how these strategies can be applied for proportional reasoning, solving equations for unknowns, and solving systems of linear equations

• Access over 100 classroom-ready activities, including worked examples, routines, and games

• Find activities to explicitly teach students how to use and choose strategies to operate on rational numbers and solve algebraic equations

• Download all of the needed support tools, game boards, and other resources from the companion website for immediate implementation
