Description
We’re excited to share with you our best practices for experiencing mathematics in a learner-centered,

standards-based classroom. During this Math Academy, you will deepen your understanding of fractional

representations, make connections between representations, and consider the implications for your own

classroom.

By the conclusion of the Early Fraction Concepts Math Academy, you will be able to:

•Differentiate high- and low-level tasks and their implications for learning.

•Develop a conceptual understanding of fractions as equal parts of a whole, as equal parts of sets, and as

division.

•Explore fractional equivalence.

•Use benchmark fractions to compare and order fractions.

•Make connections between content-deepening tasks and classroom instruction.

•Understand the Standards for Mathematical Practice and how they can be addressed through high-level

tasks and student-centered instruction.
