How to Teach Decimals Better


In this session we will look at an easy to implement diagnostic test to identify common decimals misconceptions held by students. These misconceptions will be explored, as will a range of teaching strategies to address them. The concrete teaching aid, Linear Arithmetic Blocks (LABs), will be demonstrated. These can be constructed by participants and used to teach place value and decimals. Participants will receive copies of files and handouts, as well as detailed instructions for constructing the LABs.
