Event Details

Developing Fractions Sense

Did you know that 5 out of every 4 people have trouble with fractions? If you are ½-way to losing your mind teaching fractions, then this class is for you. More than 40 standards between grades 3 and 6 relate to fractions. Developing students’ understanding of fraction concepts can be a challenge when using traditional teaching methods that focus on procedures and algorithms. This class will help you to acquire the content knowledge and instructional strategies to enable your students to make sense of fractions. Participants will (1) explain the content and instructional shifts for teaching fractions resulting from adoption of Idaho Core Mathematics, (2) identify children’s strategies for solving fraction problems, (3) implement research-based instructional strategies to build students’ understanding of fractions and algebra, and (4) reflect on classroom implications.
