544- The Power of the Number Line: Understanding Fractions as Numbers

Saturday, April 16, 2016: 8:00 AM-9:15 AM
3011 (Moscone)


Lead Speaker:
Ryan Casey


Why do we have students place fractional values on the number line? What do they gain from this? With well-developed prior understandings, students can use the number line as a bridge between whole and rational numbers. Participants will explore a progression of classroom tasks that build connections between linear measurement and numbers.
