    Great questions and problems of practice here.

    Have you explored the 5 mathematical proficiencies from the Adding It Up document from the National Research Council? Chapter 4 is a great read and helps to articulate what true mathematical proficiency consists of.

    Many struggle with first moving from procedural fluency only (or what they believe it is – usually just rote memorization, not real fluency) to building other proficiencies in. Here at Make Math Moments, we believe that you build procedural fluency through conceptual understanding. We do this through problem based lessons. Striking the balance between all 5 proficiencies takes time and cannot be articulated through blanket statements like ___ minutes of this or ___ minutes of that.

    Super complex problem of practice, but so worth exploring!

    Can you help paint a picture of what this looks / sounds like in the classrooms you have described?
