Course Description

This course will help you teach fractions concepts and skills more effectively through understanding students’ thinking and implementing research-based approaches in your classroom. It will help you address rigorous curriculum standards for fractions, whether from the Common Core State Standards or from other up-to-date standards.
The overall goals are that participants will:
  • Develop a deeper understanding of the fractions content standards, and relevant practice standards, that apply in their own schools.
  • Investigate common student misconceptions about fractions and why fractions are hard for children (and adults) to understand.
  • Analyze students’ thinking about fractions to inform instruction.
  • Address students’ learning differences when teaching fraction concepts and skills.
  • Learn to effectively use:
    • Fair-sharing activities to help students understand key concepts of fractions, such as fractions representing the relationship between parts ...

  • Learn to effectively use:
    • Fair-sharing activities to help students understand key concepts of fractions, such as fractions representing the relationship between parts and wholes, equivalent fractions and comparing fractions. (Focus of Unit 2)
    • Measurement and number line activities to help children understand fractions as part of the number system and key concepts such as equivalent fractions, comparing fractions, and the relationship of fraction and integer operations. (Focus of Unit 3)
    • Activities to help students understand why procedures for computations with fractions make sense. (Focus of Unit 4)
