### Event Details

This Developing Fraction Sense IntroWebinar will provide participants with a taste of the full-day fractions workshop focusing on the Common Core fractions-related standards for grades 3 and 4.

The Common Core Math Standards related to fractions requires teachers to look at fractions from a new perspective. It is no longer sufficient for teachers to know the rules for performing the operations with fractions. Rather, teachers are expected to develop a deep conceptual understanding of fractions, using visual fraction models, and to convey this understanding to their students.

This webinar will select from among the following topics:

• The importance of visually demonstrating all concepts related to fractions
• Why working with unit fractions is the key to all work with fractions
• How working with pattern blocks dramatically simplifies the teaching of fractions
• How to use grid paper to illustrate the operations with fractions
• The importance of distinguishing a length on the number line from a point on the number line
• An easy way to help students avoid adding the denominators when adding fractions
• A clear way to explain, illustrate and generate equivalent fractions
• How to use benchmarks to compare fractions
• A simple way to understand multiplication of a fraction by a whole number
• How to visually illustrate word problems involving fractions

Make sure that your computer is ready to go by running a System Test for the Anymeeting platform.

You will receive a link to the actual webinar room 48 hours prior to the time and date of the webinar.

Thank you.
