UC San Diego Mathematics Project Learning Event

Teaching Fractions through Ratio Reasoning Grades 3-6

June 19-21, 2019
San Diego County Office of Education
Labs 2 & 3
6401 Linda Vista Rd.
San Diego, CA 92111

Description: Moving from whole numbers to rational numbers is a challenge for many students. Join us to deepen your own understanding of rational numbers and learn research-based and classroom-tested strategies that use ratio reasoning to build a cohesive learning opportunity for all of your students.

This three day professional development series raises and addresses these questions:
■ How can I use ratio reasoning to deepen understanding of part/whole “fractions”?
■ How can I use equal share problems to lay a foundation for grade level “fraction” learning?
■ What is the multiplicative relationship between numerator and denominator? How does this build a foundation for ratio reasoning?
■ What are more sensible algorithms for adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing “fractions”?

Participants will receive a copy of Extending Children’s Mathematics: Fractions and Decimals by Susan Empson and Linda Levi

Cost: $350 per individual
$300 per individual for a team of 3 or more
