Thursday, April 14, 2011: 10:30 AM-12:00 PM
Grand Ballroom VII (JW Marriott)
Lead Speaker:
Julie McNamara
Meghan M. Shaughnessy

Fraction sense is tied to common sense. Students with fraction sense can reason about fractions and don’t apply rules and procedures blindly, nor do they give nonsensical answers to fraction problems. The speakers will discuss what fraction sense is, why it’s important, and how you can help students develop it. They will share common dilemmas and activities.
