Automaticity in Numeracy

Current Status

Get Started

A common barrier for students who experience learning difficulties in numeracy is lack of automaticity in basic facts. The impact is that they then ‘use up’ mental resources on calculations and cannot adequately attend to higher order aspects of mathematics or numeracy tasks. This workshop will provide a brief, evidence-informed rationale for developing automaticity in number facts, including consideration of how this differs from rote learning. Then the key focus will be on strategies and approaches for teaching number facts and examples of games and activities to help develop automaticity. The content of this workshop will be relevant to teachers of students of any age who experience learning difficulties in numeracy. Presented by Dr Anne Bellert.
