In This Course, Participants…

  • gain a better understanding of rational numbers
  • engage in activities from Investigations to understand how students make sense of and reason about rational numbers, and how they use their understanding to solve problems
  • examine and use representations and equivalencies to describe and compare fractions and decimals
  • consider the role of estimation when solving problems involving rational numbers
  • analyze students’ work on problems involving rational numbers
  • consider what students do and don’t understand about operations with rational numbers and how they relate to operations with whole numbers
  • look more deeply at the development of rational numbers at a particular grade level

I have learned so much during this workshop, not only about how to teach Investigations, but as a learner, my mathematical understanding has greatly increased.
