458- Modeling Fraction Operations with Paper Strips

Friday, April 15, 2011: 12:30 PM-1:30 PM
128 (Convention Center)
Lead Speaker:
Ryan A. Nivens

Use one-inch paper strips to model fractions addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division as well as verifying equivalent fractions. Use a fraction table to measure the length of strips. The speaker will give instructions on how to create custom fraction tables. This model allows for a hands-on, visual representation of fraction computations and is an alternative to using a circle model.
