Fractionally more interesting than pizzas and pies.

Summary

Gaining a solid conceptual understanding of fractions is hard. It requires children to recognize that many properties of whole numbers are not true of numbers in general and to think about how numbers relate to each other rather than principally use additive thinking strategies. By the end of primary school, it is assumed that they will have the mathematical maturity to engage in proportional reasoning allowing them to access more advanced mathematics. Yet so many of our students struggle to conceptually understand fractions and fail to make the jump into intermediate or advanced mathematics.

This workshop looks at way to build conceptual knowledge using physical and visual models so that students have a deeper understanding what fractions are, how to use them and their relationship to multiplication and division.
