Lead Speaker:

Pamela Weber Harris

What is a unit fraction, 1/*a*, and why is it important? How do multiplicative thinking and equivalence influence fraction operations? We’ll discuss the Common Core State Standards for teaching fractions and ratios across the grades, with lesson examples consistent with the mathematical practices to develop deep understanding. We’ll also discuss the effects on higher math.
