Understanding Multiplication and Division of Fractions Conceptually
This session will unpack strategies to support students conceptually understanding multiplication and division of fractions. We will engage in rich mathematical tasks, watch students solve the same tasks and discuss how task selection can impact conceptual understanding. Participants will leave with engaging tasks to supplement core curriculum materials. If you know the algorithms and want a deeper understanding of why they work for you and your students, this session is for you.
