75- Teaching Number Non-Sense

Thursday, April 14, 2011: 9:30 AM-10:30 AM
101/102 (JW Marriott)
Lead Speaker:
Linda Dacey

If three-fourths is three out of four, what is five-fourths? Why do we emphasize a sharing division model and then wonder why students don’t understand division with fractions? This presentation will investigate classroom practices leading to misconceptions and explore questions, problems, and models for developing number and operations sense.

Presentation Format: 3-5 Session
