211- Using Rectangles, Number Lines, and Smiley Faces for Fraction Operations

Thursday, April 16, 2015: 1:00 PM-2:15 PM
206 A/B (BCEC)


Lead Speaker:
Jennifer W. Synold


Learn to use rectangles and number lines to model common denominators to compare, order, add, subtract, multiply, and divide fractions. These faithful models show how two different denominators can work together on the same whole, helping to eliminate the need for a different procedure for each fraction operation.
