3 Part Series: Improving Teaching and Learning in the Math Classroom
Supporting Student Work With Fractions
Math 6 to Algebra 1/Integrated Math 1
Fractions are a source of frustration for both students and teachers in secondary math. We will explore conceptual understanding of fractions and dig into your student’s thinking about fractions, their strengths, gaps and misconceptions. We will set goals and prepare short classroom activities that will remediate and extend student understanding of fractions. Each day of the workshop builds on the previous, so it is important to commit to all three days.
