I really enjoyed reading the blog by Brenda, “It’s Here! 5 Ways To Win At Fact Fluency”. This blog explains the importance making sure children understand the concept of math.. For example, why does 8 + 7 = 15? She explained that students need to understand the operations and using manipulatives will help with this. She does not believe computers should be used as the main source to teach students their facts. Online programs are not effective in teaching math. I found it interesting how she breaks math down through verbal explaination as well as with manipulatives for her students to understand.
