582- The Common Core’s Focus on Fractions

Friday, April 19, 2013: 3:30 PM-4:30 PM
Capitol Ballroom 4 (Hyatt Regency )
Lead Speaker:
Judy Curran Buck

We will examine the development of fraction understanding (grades 3–5) as described in the Common Core State Standards. Using problem-solving tasks and activities, we will focus on the transition from thinking of fractions as “parts of a shape” to numbers and on the new emphasis placed on the use of unit fractions and number lines.

Presentation Format: 3-5 Session
