Common Core Secondary Math brings you “RTI Intervention 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.
We all have the students who leave elementary school and cannot work with fractions. While some need intensive support, others simply need to have someone take the time to explain fractions and their operations. To determine if the student is fluent with these prerequisite skills, I have Intervention Fluency Checks that are used over a period of several days to a week to determine if a student can demonstrate fluency.
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.
Students do need to understand how and why math works.
Depending on the student, fluency will precede understanding or understanding will precede fluency. Some students need to be able to “do it” before they can understand it and others need to understand it before they can fluently “do it”.
Each set of fluency quizzes is designed to assess these various components which will help you figure out what part of the process a student struggles with.
You will receive 2 versions of Simplifying Radicals / Square Roots with Radicands less than 60.
Each fluency check has 5 questions and one challenge question that has a coefficient. Calculators are not needed.
Complete answer keys are included.
