Fractions rock and are the rock – Teaching so that fractions make sense
Dr Nic’s favourite topic is fractions! Sadly, fractions can be the topic where learners cease to understand and lose their love for mathematics. Teachers can feel daunted by fractions. Becoming proficient and fluent with fractions provides a rock on which to build success in more advanced mathematics.
Research has uncovered factors that make fractions difficult to learn and teach. In this workshop Dr Nic presents the findings and through active participation teachers gain ideas for teaching fractions.
