In this edWebinar, Dr. Zachary Wissner-Gross focuses on challenges around equivalence, comparison, and basic operations of fractions—suitable for middle school students and advanced elementary school students.
In this edWebinar, Zachary Wissner-Gross, PhD, explores a variety of more advanced fractions-related concepts that make for great lessons.
In this edWebinar, Drew Corley, PhD, Senior Learning Scientist at Amplify Education; and Zachary Wissner-Gross, PhD, Product Manager at Amplify Education, examine some of the misconceptions that can derail students’ understanding of fractions.
In this edWebinar, Amplify Education’s Drew Corley, PhD, and Lauren Whitley explore questions about student learning and teaching practices for fractions
edWeb.net is announcing Amplify Fractions as the new sponsor of the Adaptive Math Learning free professional learning community on edWeb. Fractions are the single greatest predictor of high school math achievement; by sixth grade, 100% of math standards assume a knowledge of fractions. Amplify Fractions uses engaging stories to provide students with personalized instruction, feedback and practice so they can learn to make sense of fractions.
In this edWebinar, Debi DePaul, Elementary Mathematics Consultant at ORIGO Education, will explore four different representations of fractions and why each is so critical and challenging to teach.
In this webinar, Kathleen Jalalpour, Middle School Math Teacher and Singapore Math Consultant, will share a variety of ways to help students gain a better understanding of fraction concepts and other mathematical topics more generally.
In this third webinar of the series, Dr. Sara Delano Moore will share strategies for helping students understand critical concepts such as common denominators and see connections between manipulative models and the algorithms we use to add and subtract fractions.
In this presentation, we will take an easy-to-digest look into how the brain processes mathematical information to gain a better understanding of how we can optimize learning fractions and other mathematical topics more generally.
In part two of our three part series, Dr. Sara Delano Moore will share manipulatives to use to develop fraction sense – understanding what fractions are, making sense of how they behave, and modeling operations with fractions.
