Common Core Secondary Math brings you “Fluent in Math: Fluency Checks for the Common Core”. The Common Core State Standards in Math (CCSSM) stress fluency with skills and procedures along with conceptual understanding and mathematical applications.
Fluency with mathematics at the secondary level requires the same repeated practice and feedback as multiplication facts did in elementary school, however, generating the required fluency checks takes time. Many middle and high school students still believe that as soon as you take a math test, you can purge the information from your brain. I created these fluency checks because I and my students needed them and I hope they can help you and your students.
They are called Fluency Checks because some of my students who need them the most have test anxiety. Eliminating the words “quiz”, “test”, and “assessment” seem to help some of them.
