Procedural Fluency: The National Council for Teachers of Mathematics states that "Procedural Fluency is a critical component of mathematical proficiency."  Procedural fluency refers to the ability to apply procedures accurately, efficiently, and flexibly. Students exhibit procedural fluency when they are able to transfer procedures to different problems and contexts, build or modify procedures from other procedures, and recognize when one strategy or procedure is more appropriate to apply than another (Procedural Fluency in Mathematics, NTCM 2014). 
 
The Singapore Math approach to mathematics instruction incorporates various strategies including number talks, number bonds, and ten frames to help students develop procedural fluency in mathematics.
