261- Students Learning Fraction Operations through Their Sense Making and Reasoning

Friday, November 14, 2014: 2:00 PM-3:00 PM
B15A (Greater Richmond Convention Center)
Lead Speaker:
Henry S. Kepner

Building on student sense making, the use of multiple representations, reasoning with properties, and whole-number proficiencies, we will examine student experiences to establish meaningful fraction operations (from early strategies to algorithms). Focus on teaching sequences, teacher-coordinated mathematical conversations, and student reflections.

Presentation Format: 3-5 Session
