Ready to Teach Fractions: Part 1

Course Description:

Unlock the mysteries surrounding children's struggle with fractions. Through the work of the Rational Number Project (RNP), you will begin to view fraction number sense as an extension of whole number sense, and become familiar with the Lesh Translation Model, while reviewing learning theory. Explore how using manipulatives to help children develop mental images of fractions (rather than algorithms) boosts understanding. As the cornerstone of this course, the practical and research-based RNP fraction curriculum will be made available for classroom implementation.
