Engaging students with multiple models of fractions. (English)
Teach. Child. Math. 22, No. 3, 138-147 (2015).
Summary: An understanding of unit fractions, and especially of one-half, one-third, and one-fourth, is crucially important for elementary school children’s development of number sense. We describe multimodal activities designed to assist elementary school students in gaining a rich understanding of unit fractions. Research has shown that participation in the activities described in this article helped fifth-grade students develop wider imagery and deepen their understandings with respect to unit fractions concepts. A body of literature is developing that is directed at teachers who wish to fruitfully engage elementary school students in concept-rich fractions activities. (ERIC)
