21- Developing Fraction Sense by Considering Three Models (Area, Length, Set)

Thursday, November 13, 2014: 8:00 AM-9:15 AM
Capital Ballroom 6/7/8 (Marriott) (Marriott)
Lead Speaker:
Ann Wallace

This session focuses on the three models for fractions. Models can help students clarify ideas that are confused using only procedural methods. Different models offer different opportunities to learn. Differentiating among the three models (area, length, and set) will broaden and deepen students (and teachers) understanding of fractions.
