Mental Fluency In Mathematics Email Print Mental Fluency in Mathematics The national curriculum programme of study for mathematics is very light on the detail needed to develop mental mathematics, yet this is a fundamental skill and a cornerstone of pupils’ ability to be flexible and adaptable with their numbers. The primary mathematics team at Herts for Learning is working extensively to supports schools to put the detail back into the curriculum offer and to ensure that pupils build these essential skills in a progressive and secure way. Mental fluency is the key to success and is so much more than just what pupils can hold in their heads. This new video, Mental Fluency in Mathematics, is one of the tools developed specifically to help schools consider the elements needed to embed this into their classrooms and ensure pupils approach their mathematics with confidence and flexibility.
