"Math Running Records are indispensable tools that allow us to zoom in on exactly where each child is on the math development progression and provide us with the roadmap to forward each of them on their math journey starting with the first early numeracy skills and progressing to multiplication and division strategic thought as well. It is not an understatement to say that, with the help of Newton's book, implementing math running records will change everything and will be the key to developing confident, flexible math thinkers who are prepared to take on the more sophisticated math concepts that lie ahead!" -- Ann Elise Record, Math Specialist at Hillside and Brown Elementary Schools, NH
"Dr. Nicki Newton provides the missing link between concept learning and memorization of the basic math facts. This instructional link, fact reasoning strategies, is essential to fact fluency development. Math Running Records are a research tool that authentically assesses fact fluency. Each chapter offers practical charts, activities, and tools that emphasize the development and application of strategies. Fluency doesn't just happen; it needs to be purposely practiced." -- Celeste Beaulieu, Instruction Math Specialist at Wells Elementary School, ME
