 Representational Fluency Gymnasium 

As long as we are creating, we are cultivating meaning.

- Brené Brown

The phrase representational fluency describes when seeing one thing causes us to picture that thing in a variety of contexts. It is very important in math!

For example, consider the idea of hundredths! We know so many contexts for this idea!

Below is a table with two columns. Try matching the ten variations of "47 hundredths" in the left column with their contexts in the right column. How fast can you match all ten?
