Key Messages:

  • Fluency demands more of learners than memorisation of a single procedure or collection of facts. It encompasses a mixture of efficiency, accuracy and flexibility.


  • Quick and efficient recall of facts and procedures is important in order for learners’ to keep track of sub problems, think strategically and solve problems. 


  • Fluency also demands the flexibility to move between different contexts and representations of mathematics, to recognise relationships and make connections and to make appropriate choices from a whole toolkit of methods, strategies and approaches.
