Event Details

 


This Developing Fraction Sense Introductory Webinar will provide participants with a taste of the full-day Developing Fractions Sense Workshop: Grades 3 and 4 Standards.

The current national approach related to teaching 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
  • 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

 We will be using JOIN.me for this session. 

 You will receive a link to the actual webinar room the day before the webinar.

 

Thank you.
