Activities that promote mathematical reasoning are essential for developing mathematically proficient students. Building fluency and flexibility with numbers is equally essential. Activities that combine both and that are accessible to all students are rare. I will share several activities, resources, and adaptation strategies that promote both reasoning and fluency, while addressing language challenges. Participants will work through activities during the session, experience productive struggle, and learn techniques to make the mathematics accessible to all students.
