Understanding Fractions Institute
Understanding fractions as numbers and understanding operations with fractions have been areas of mathematics proven to be difficult for students to master and for teachers to teach. During this two-day institute, we will discuss the essential understandings of fractions, develop a variety of representations for fractions, explore their relationship to whole numbers and ratios, and investigate ways to help students understand how operations with fractions relate to operations with whole numbers.
