190- Watch Out! Whole! Translating Whole-Number Concepts to Fractional Numbers

Thursday, April 14, 2011: 1:00 PM-2:30 PM
Marriott Ballroom 1/2 (Marriott Downtown)
Lead Speaker:
Courtney Nelson

When children begin using fractional symbols and thinking, they need to assimilate their concepts of whole number to make room for rational numbers. The speaker will investigate some of the pivotal phases of understanding for children as they think about using the same "old" number symbols in new ways, and why identifying the whole unit matters.
