ED692
This course is designed to deepen teachers’ understanding of fractions and how children develop their knowledge of fractions. Research shows that a teachers’ understanding of fractions correlates to how well students progress as they develop their knowledge of fractions. As early as 2nd grade, students are required to begin developing their understanding of fractions. In 4th grade, students start to compute with fractions, and by 5th and 6th grade, students need to have efficient and flexible strategies in order to add, subtract, multiply, and divide fractions. In this course, we will study one text, Developing Fractions Knowledge by Wright, et al (a new AVMR book, copyright 2016) and utilize videos and assessment tasks to improve teachers’ capacities with fractions.
