In This Course, Participants…

  • learn about models and representations that support students in making sense of operations involving fractions
  • experience the development of ideas about fractions across the grades
  • make connections between the CCSS Standards and Mathematical Practices
  • solve addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division problems with fractions
  • examine student work
  • read, watch, and listen as students make sense of fractions across the grades

This course has truly been eye opening. I learned fractions through memorizing procedures. Fractions are no longer scary to me, but a topic that will be fun and engaging to teach.
