The Struggle is Real...
Fear Not the Fraction! (Grades 3-5)

Fractions are the foundation for a series of important secondary math concepts, yet the struggle with teaching fractions is real! Participants will engage in rigorous tasks designed to elicit sense making related to fraction concepts as learners first and then observe students engaging in the same tasks. It’s time to put the fear of fractions away!
