TRC Math: Understanding Students' Thinking About Fractions Gr 3-5 (2 day training) - 004889
Teachers will participate in a two-day learning experience that explores the progression of concepts that students need to understand and apply fractions in meaningful ways. The design of the workshop is intended to provide teachers with research data on children's thinking about fractions and the mathematical tasks related to that thinking. This knowledge will enable teachers to better understand children's reasoning, explanations and use of representations in solving problems involving fractions. Finally, the session will focus on using what we learn about children's thinking in fractions to design tasks or problems to use in both small group and large group instruction.
