Solving the Fraction Mystery
Fractions are conceptually difficult for many. Moving beyond pizza and pie models, we will explore the many ways for developing fraction understanding including using concrete manipulatives. Throughout this two-day workshop participants will engage in conceptually meaningful mathematics tasks for all fraction operations. Participants will have the opportunity to gain a foundational understanding of fractions. Our journey through fractions will conclude with connections to ratios and proportional reasoning.
