K-5 Computation Strategies

In the elementary grades, a major focus of students' work is becoming fluent with addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. In mathematics, the word fluent means "accurate, efficient, and flexible." Students develop fluency in each operation through several years of careful development that includes practice of facts and procedures as well as activities that deepen understanding and flexibility. Developing fluency is "not a matter of instilling facts and procedures divorced from their meanings, but rather an outcome of a multi-year process that heavily involves the interplay of practice and reasoning." 
(Progression for CC and OA (draft), pp. 18 – 19;
