Exploring the Landscape of Fractions

This workshop explores the development of rational numbers. Through investigations, looking at student work, video analysis, and guided number strings, participants will construct developmental trajectories related to fractions. The session will begin by exploring early development of fractions using the fair-sharing context and evolve into rich investigations and mathematical tasks that support students’ ability to solve
problems, construct arguments, and defend their reasoning related to fractions.  Click here for more information.

Be sure to sign up using your X2 account - MAT 2020.  The course will close on Thursday, March 20th.  Registration is for the first 30 participants.
