How to Help Students Build Deep Understanding of Math Concepts
It’s possible to help students build lasting knowledge of math concepts as well as procedural fluency. Armed with both, students can become confident and proficient with math inside and outside the classroom.
In this research brief, you will
- learn what research studies indicate about the role that procedural fluency and conceptual knowledge play in student learning,
- uncover two common barriers preventing students from developing a strong foundation of conceptual knowledge in today’s math classrooms, and
- explore what effective conceptual learning is and what it looks like in practice, including four ways to promote deep conceptual understanding in your math classroom.
