Mastering Fraction Division: Using Visual Models to Promote Deep Learning

Tuesday, November 13, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EST

Fraction Division Using Visual Models

Presented by Sara Delano Moore, Ph.D., Director of Professional Learning, ORIGO Education
Sponsored by ORIGO Education


Deep learning, as described in John Hattie’s Visible Learning™ research, focuses on recognizing relationships among ideas. When students are engaged in deep learning in the mathematics classroom, they are actively seeking to understand the underlying structure of mathematics. This type of thinking is associated with the mathematical practices and process standards found in contemporary state and national standards documents. How do we help students think like this?

Supporting students to use and connect multiple representations of mathematics is one strategy for helping students progress from surface learning to deep learning. Visual models are particularly important as they bridge from concrete models to abstract representations for many learners.

This three-part edWebinar series explores the use of a variety of representations, including visual models, for developing student understanding of subtraction, multi-digit multiplication, and fraction division. In part three of this series, share models and representations which develop fraction division with conceptual understanding. Watch Sara Delano Moore, Ph.D., Director of Professional Learning at ORIGO Education, to explore a variety of resources to support student understanding and mastery of fraction division.

This recorded edWebinar series will be of particular benefit to elementary math educators.
