Fractions: From Misunderstanding to Deep Understanding
Room: GTCC Ballroom B & C
Did you know that using a limited number of visual models for fractions hinders students’ abilities to internalize and generalize fraction concepts? Explore four different representations of fractions and why each is so critical. Learn how different types of models provide different perceptual features and therefore serve different purposes.
