Learning Fractions With Picture Puzzles


This session offers a differentiated, multiple intelligence approach involving seeing, touching, saying and recording fractions in natural language. The approach precedes, and strengthens fluency with, the symbolic fraction form. We will use Cuisenaire Rods in an introductory activity-based discussion, then partners will use Picture Puzzle challenges to explore further. You will need a web-connected device which opens PDF to use with a partner. 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.
