Answering Parents' Questions About Common Core Math  KQED MindShift reporter Katrina Schwartz answers questions about California's Common Core math curriculum. Reporter: Katrina Schwartz
Fluency without Fear: What about Memorization?This short paper, Fluency Without Fear, illustrates both the damage that is caused by the practices that often accompany the teaching of math facts – speed pressure, timed testing and blind memorization – and summarizes the research evidence of something very different – number sense. High achieving students use number sense and it is critical that lower achieving students, instead of working on drill and memorization, also learn to use numbers flexibly and conceptually. Memorization and timed testing stand in the way of number sense, giving students the impression that sense making is not important. One way to do this is via games and tasks in which students learn math facts at the same time as working on something they enjoy, rather than something they fear.
