Growing research evidence indicates that the majority of students enter middle school with a limited understanding of fractions and, as a result, struggle with much of the mathematics content in middle school and beyond. In this course, we will investigate the essential understandings of fractions as numbers - partitioning, comparing, ordering, equivalence. We will also investigate flexible and meaningful strategies for fraction computation.

Target Audience: K-12 Administrators, AEA Education Consultants, Instructional Coaches, Paraeducators, Special Education Consultants, Substitute Teachers, Teachers
Instructors: Amy Keller, Becky Thorson
