Hi Yvonne,

According to NCTM's Principles and Standards for School Mathematics:

"It should be evident that procedural knowledge is intertwined with
conceptual knowledge. For example, one cannot extend or modify a procedure
for finding the least common multiple of two numbers unless the concept of
common multiple is itself understood."

You might also be interested in glancing over this article:

Good luck.
