Developing Number Fluency
Marian Small

Marian Small writes and speaks about K-12 math across the country. Her focus is on teacher questioning to get at the important math, to include all students, and to focus on critical thinking and creativity. 

Some resources she has written include MathUp, Making Math Meaningful for Canadian Students, Good Questions: A Great Way to Differentiate Math Instruction, Uncomplicating Fractions,  Open Questions for Rich Math Lessons, and The School Leader’s Guide for Building and Sustaining Math Success.


In this session, we will discuss both content ideas and differentiation strategies that suit the needs of most K-6 students in math. In particular, we will look at: 

• What are the MOST IMPORTANT ideas on which to focus to help students build number fluency and flexibility ? 

• How do we set up activities suitable for a broad range of students so that all of them have access to building that number fluency and flexibility?
