Help students build strong conceptual understanding as you learn to implement fraction instruction based on a variety of visual models, concrete manipulatives, and hands-on activities. During this workshop, teachers will understand the progression of fraction instruction and learn how to build a foundational understanding of fractions before advancing to algorithms and abstract equations. Participants will leave with strategies for alternative methods of computing fractions and full collection of activities and games designed for purposeful practice.
