Reply To: 2.3 – Number Sense vs. Math Fluency
If students are fluent in math or demonstrate math fluency, they can quickly and accurately come to the answer when presented with a math fact, and be able to employ various strategies that represent number sense in order to come to those conclusions.
Number sense includes a students’ ability to reason with numbers, and understand operations, etc. conceptually, rather than being fluent in math through rote memorization.
