Fraction Representations and Operations – Matthew Oldridge

In this webinar, participants will be learning to represent fractions using linear models, area, volume, and sets. We will learn how these representations inform our sense of equivalence, and look at how fraction operations in grades 6-8 can be taught conceptually with “no tricks”. We will unravel the curriculum expectations and focus on ways to represent fractions, leading to the landscape of fraction operations, and the tricky terrain of multiplying and dividing fractions efficiently and accurately.
