project funded by the National Science Foundation. Project personnel
have been investigating children$\rq$s learning of fractions, ratios,
decimals and proportionality since 1979. The book is the product of
several years of working with childrens in classrooms trying to
understand how to organize instruction so students develop a deep,
conceptual understanding for fractions. The given 23 lessons were
originally developed for this research. Content: (I) Teacher$\rq$s
Guide; (II) The RNP Lessons: Level 1; (III) Appendix - Fraction Circles
and Assessment Ideas.
