In Knowing and Teaching Elementary Mathematics, Liping Ma addresses the gap in student learning and suggests that it will also mean addressing the gap in teacher knowledge. This session strives to challenge teacher knowledge and assist teachers in creating future lessons that will enhance and challenge student understanding of mathematics and its importance to daily living, particularly as it relates to fractions.


You'll explore the concept of whole and part and apply this understanding to breaking down fractional parts into smaller parts, in conversations, small group work and more. You'll examine fraction forms and create representations of fractions using counting tiles and various models. Discussions will help you learn how to apply grade level standards of proportional thinking to new understanding of fractional knowledge. You'll leave this session prepared to support students in mastery of grade level skills, while at the same time taking the necessary side trips to strengthen their foundation skills in fractions.
