This four-part asynchronous series will engage participants in activities designed to expand current perspectives and pedagogies around fraction understanding and fraction instruction in the elementary grades during remote and hybrid instruction.

“Weak or incomplete mathematical understanding of rational number concepts has a profound impact on students’ success in algebra” (Reeder, 2017).

In this series, you will examine and analyze information about how students conceptualize fractions and what teachers can do to facilitate students’ understanding of fractions as numbers, especially in our current remote or hybrid instructional models. You will consider the connections between whole number understanding and fraction understanding and how to help students create conceptual understandings of fractions that build to procedural fluency over time. You will study representations of fractions, including concrete, visual, symbolic, contextual, and verbal as well as the connections among those representations in order to help our students deepen and expand their fraction comprehension.

Please note that a variety of interactive tools including virtual manipulatives and applications from the Google Suite will be employed during these sessions.
