Handouts Beyond Invert & Multiply NCTM 2016 McNamara #88.pdf


Students often struggle with fraction computation. We’ll share hands-on strategies for helping students learn to compute accurately, efficiently, and with understanding. Activities will develop and build on students' "fraction sense" and help students understand fractions as numbers as called for in CCSSM. Video from classrooms will be shared.
