A Bit of Background...

Over the past twenty years, I have worked with hundreds of students to help them develop  addition fact fluency. These experiences taught me that students can become fluency with all facts (through 10 + 10) by using well-known facts to derive other products and "fluency cards" with visual models and cues are a simple and effective tool for fact fluency.  On this page, you'll find some background information about the mathematics behind this approach as well as a visual depiction of a progression to wards fact fluency. Finally, you will find the fact fluency cards and Google slidedecks I've developed as free, downloadable files.
