Learning Fractions With Picture Puzzles


This session offers a differentiated, multiple intelligence approach involving seeing, touching, saying and recording fractions in natural language. This approach precedes, and strengthens fluency with, their symbolic form. We will use Cuisenaire Rods in an introductory activity-based discussion, then partners will use Picture Puzzle challenges to explore further. For the exploration partners will need one web-connected device which opens PDF. In this short session we will begin to learn to 'seek the whole' when attempting to solve any symbol or word based fraction exercise. You will also discover that you can make your own Picture Puzzles.
