US Math Recovery was thrilled to join the Florida Council for Teachers Mathematics at its 69th Annual Conference. The conference took place June 16-18 at the Hilton Bayfront in St. Petersburg, Florida. USMRC's Petey MacCarty and Marria Carrington spent the conference among hundreds of math education professionals for compelling sessions, networking opportunities, and valuable content.
Marria Carrington took part in the presentations during the FCTM Conference on June 16. You can learn more about Marria's session below.
Beyond Fluency to 20: Intentional Sequences to Build Fluency in Addition and Subtraction Within 100
We can all agree that basic fact fluency in addition and subtraction within 20 is an important goal of the early grades, but addition and subtraction to 100 is an often-forgotten next step in the development of students' mental computation. In this session, we will explore the research-based learning trajectory, developed by Dr. Robert Wright and colleagues, that will support you in laying a foundation for your students' arithmetic learning. This session will identify essential skills students acquire as they develop a range of efficient and flexible mental computational strategies. We will analyze videos of student thinking and teacher moves to clarify our understanding of the domain of addition and subtraction within 100 while analyzing task selection and methods to move students forward. We will explore tools that, when used intentionally, will advance student learning in this domain.
