1. Five Easy Steps to a Balanced Math Program Houston Elementary December 4, 2006

2. The Balanced Math Program Components Step One: Computational Skills Step Two: Conceptual Understanding Step Three: Problem Solving Step Four: Mastery of Basic Facts Step Five: The Grade-Level Big Idea

3. STEP ONE: Computation Skills

4. Computation Skills: Math Review 4 or 5 problems, 15-20 minutes per day (Kindergarten 1 problem on white boards) Reflect computational standards for grade Reinforce prior learning of math skills Provide daily practice for mathematical procedures Math Review Quiz every 2 weeks to guide next cycle of problems

5. Teachers Role Math Review Encourage multiple approaches to promote mathematical reasoning and develop number sense Emphasize reasonableness of answer, estimation, and computational strategies Change types of computational problems throughout year cycle out those mastered, cycle in new skills to learn

6. Resources for Math Review Problems Math text Examples within unit or chapter lessons Teacher-designed Practice problems in format of standardized test

7. The Math Review Template A Simple Way To Organize Procedural Problems For Daily Practice

8. Processing Computational Skills Key is number sense, reasonable answer Error analysis where was mistake made? Vary methods for processing math review problems Teacher-directed Student-directed Pass the Pen method Speedy system Tutors and Tutees

9. Math Review Accountability: The Friday Quiz 2 of each type practiced during math review-weekly or 2x/month Teacher corrected or students correct their own for immediate feedback Results are used to make decision about next weeks problems Provide extra practice Parents sign quiz and help student with types of problems missed Students practice additional problems like those missed on quiz, at home or at school

10. Helping All Students Succeed in Math Review Teacher helps students during Math Review: Individually Small, flex groups Tutors assist tutees on problems causing difficulty Teacher provides bonus problems and invites everyone to attempt them
