In January, Fenton Avenue Charter School students implemented the Ironbox system for multiplication fluency. It was created by Dr. Randy Palisoc, who has developed a one-of-a-kind Ironbox system based on his experience working with thousands of students from elementary school through high school and finding out what helps them get into the Math Fluency Zone faster. Over 400 students have mastered their facts!
Parents attended a math workshop on January 19th, presented by Dr. Randy Palisoc, From Math Anxiety to Math Fluency. It was extremely well attended and well received. During the workshop, Dr. Palisoc demonstrated to parents how they could help their children build math fluency and confidence. All families in attendance received a free copy of the book our teachers are using as we begin our 20-day implementation of Ironbox, 10 Powerful Steps to Multiplication Fluency. Here is Dr. Palisoc's TED Talk: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V6yixyiJcos
