A mathematics intervention that focused on increasing basic math fact fluency was conducted to determine its effectiveness with a second-grade student. Flashcard drills with basic addition and subtraction facts were practiced each week in combination with corrective feedback and self-graphing. During the last five sessions, strategy development skills were taught in addition to the initial components. The student was progress monitored each week using timed worksheets with addition, subtraction, and mixed facts. The results indicated that the student was able to increase her math fact fluency; however, it is questioned whether or not teaching computation strategies was beneficial for fluency.
