Math Methods Class

Tonight I brought activities that demonstrated partitive as well as subtractive meanings and algorithms for long division. Then we talked about the role of memorization of math facts. Most of the 30 California teachers felt that memorization had some role, but that conceptual knowledge should back it up. The question for each and every one of us is how we determine that "best balance."

What do you do?
