Getting Unstuck! Learning Fractions with Real-Time Digital Feedback
Wednesday, July 12, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
Presented by Zachary Wissner-Gross, PhD, Product Manager, Amplify Education; with Drew Corley, PhD, Senior Learning Scientist, Amplify Education
Sponsored by Amplify Fractions
WATCH THE EDWEBINAR RECORDING
If you attended the live session, you’ll be emailed a CE certificate within 24 hours of the webinar. If you view the recording and would like a CE certificate, join the Adaptive Math Learning community and go to the edWebinar Archives folder to take the CE quiz.
In digital instruction, there is great interest in automating assistance or intervention for students who “get stuck.” Simple implementations include presenting step-by-step solutions of similar problems or watching brief videos on related content. More recently, various digital products now offer real-time, automated feedback for students, often in the form of text, and customized to a student’s answer history.
In this edWebinar, Amplify Education’s Dr. Zachary Wissner-Gross and Dr. Drew Corley examine various types and modalities of feedback, as well as richer combinations of audio, visuals, text, and manipulative interaction. Specific examples related to fractions are explored, with an eye toward getting students “unstuck” from common fractions misconceptions, while at the same time keeping them motivated.
Learn about the efficacies of various forms of real-time feedback for a better understanding of new ways that technology can support students who are learning fractions. There will be time to ask our presenters your questions after their presentation. All educators and administrators working on fraction-related math instruction are invited to watch this recorded session.
Special Invitation: All edWebinar participants are invited to try Amplify Fractions for free through the end of the year. Amplify Fractions is a digital learning solution where adaptive learning meets great storytelling to help students make sense of fractions. Your free trial also allows you to set up your students to access the program. Sign up for your free trial now! Access runs through June 30, 2018. (This offer is available to anyone who pre-registers, attends live, or watches the recording.)

Dr. Wissner-Gross previously co-founded School Yourself, an online learning platform used by hundreds of thousands of students around the world. With School Yourself, he launched the first two adaptive massive open online courses (AlgebraX and GeometryX) and authored three interactive textbooks in high school and college mathematics. He completed his undergraduate education in physics and biology at MIT, and went on to earn his doctorate in physics from Harvard University, where he was a Hertz Fellow and received the White Award for Excellence in Teaching.
Dr. Drew Corley is a senior learning scientist at Amplify Education, where he and his team are actively developing Amplify Fractions, an adaptive, story-driven approach to mathematical instruction. Dr. Corley is an NBPTS certified teacher in mathematics (EA) with seven years of classroom experience at the high school and collegiate level. During and after graduate studies, Dr. Corley has focused heavily on the topics of assessment and upper elementary- and middle-grades students’ learning and understanding of mathematics, particularly in the rational number domain. He received his BS in mathematics and MT in secondary mathematics education from the University of South Carolina, and went on to earn his doctorate in mathematics education from North Carolina State University.
Join the Adaptive Math Learning community to network with educators, participate in online discussions, receive invitations to upcoming edWebinars, view past edWebinars, take a quiz to receive a CE certificate for a past edWebinar, and access free resources.
Amplify Fractions is a digital learning program, laser-focused on fractions. It’s where adaptive learning meets great storytelling, giving students personalized instruction, feedback and practice—all in an animated story-driven environment. Students don’t just learn fractions, they learn to make sense of fractions.
