This course examines learning progressions and models related to operations on fractions. Another module, Developing Fraction Concepts 3-5, explores the meaning of “fraction” and fundamental concepts of equivalence and comparison. This module goes a step further to examine conceptual understanding of fraction operations and the models used to develop these concepts. Specific goals and activities include the following:
- Examine different types of conceptual models used to represent fraction operations.
- Discover how learning progression guide students’ developing knowledge of fraction operations in grades 3-5.
- Explore and apply fraction operations in real-world contexts.
