Thursday, April 14, 2011: 3:00 PM-4:30 PM
Grand Ballroom II (JW Marriott)
Lead Speaker:
Kit Norris

Why are fractions so hard to teach? Why are they so hard to understand? This interactive workshop explores fractions from a developmental perspective. We will use everyday tools to support students as they develop their conceptual understanding, and we will investigate a variety of procedures to work with the four arithmetic operations.
