    Greg Tang was a Featured Presenter for the Opening Session at the NCTM conference in Atlantic City last week. Two of my colleagues and I attended his presentation with much delight. We found his way of looking at developing math skills both entertaining and significant. He had a clear message about building math fluency through fun, better methods that included a social media component. We have already adapted his game Kakooma into into our Upper Elementary classrooms. (www.gregtangmath.com/Kakooma) Our discussions have also started about how to adapt other online math games into our Lower Elementary grades.
