One of the most important goals of teaching mathematics is for the student to acquire speed, accuracy, and mastery in reaching results, so skill means doing the process quickly, accurately, and proficiently. Making calculations and generalizations are taught for the purpose of their direct uses and applications, and the use of these generalizations directly or in other typical situations. The curriculum, which also means the use of knowledge quickly, accurately and proficiently, and there are basic skills that every educated learner is indispensable for if he wants to deal with others easily and easily, especially in the life of the present and the future. Second: Recommendations

          In light of the results obtained, the study recommends the following:

Training mathematics teachers - before and during service - on how to use modern teaching strategies, including the flexible group strategy, to teach mathematics at different levels of education.

Providing all the necessary capabilities for the mathematics teacher to use modern teaching strategies in teaching within the school classroom.

Recommending the inclusion of the flexible grouping strategy in teacher guides for mathematics at all academic levels.

Based on the results of the study, the following future studies can be suggested:

The effectiveness of the flexible group strategy in developing life skills and problem solving.The effectiveness of the flexible groups strategy in modifying alternative concepts among primary school students.
