Screen Shot 2015-05-05 at 5.13.46 PMNew standards & assessments emphasize building procedural knowledge from conceptual understanding – the algorithm comes at the end of instruction. Our Spring 2015 series focused on the role of visual models in helping students make this transition effectively so that the steps of procedures make sense to them. In this last webinar of our Five-Session Series, presented by the Building Understanding in Mathematics community on, Dr. Sara Delano Moore shared strategies for helping students understand why fraction multiplication and division seem to behave differently from fraction addition and subtraction. View the webinar to learn how to help students make sense of fraction multiplication and division.
