A great article from Teaching Children Mathematics on achieving fact fluency in a humane way WITHOUT a bunch of timed tests. It is all about giving your students DAILY opportunities to discuss mathematics.
Alcumus: The Art of Problem Solving
Alcumus is specifically designed to provide high-performing students with a challenging curriculum appropriate to their abilities.
Many of the problems are from major national math competitions such as MATHCOUNTS, MOEMS, the American Mathematics Competitions, and the Centre for Education in Mathematics and Computing competitions.
As the student gets stronger, Alcumus automatically provides more challenging material, and conversely, if the student is having difficulty with a particular topic, Alcumus provides additional practice.
A great resource that provides online professional development for teachers interested in improving their craft. Lots of great ideas for the classroom.
