- Fluency demands more of students than memorisation of a single procedure or collection of facts. It encompasses a mixture of efficiency, accuracy and flexibility.
- Quick and efficient recall of facts and procedures is important in order for students to keep track of sub-problems, think strategically and solve problems.
- Fluency also demands the flexibility to move between different contexts and representations of mathematics, to recognise relationships and make connections, and to make appropriate choices from a whole toolkit of methods, strategies and approaches.
