Class Notes


  • Classroom Teachers

  • Support Teachers (EIP, GIFTED, SPED, ESOL, and other interventionists)

  • Instructional Coaches

  • Student Teachers



    1. Knowledge: Participants will gain understanding of the learning progression in fractions and decimals, how it builds throughout elementary grades, key elements of fractional/proportional reasoning and its representations, and instructional strategies that maximize student learning. 

    2. Practice: Teachers will become equipped with Effective Mathematics Teaching Practices (NCTM, 2014) to promote Standards for Mathematical Practices involving fractions and decimals in their classrooms.

    3. Participants will learn to:

    • Understand and use the learning progression of fractional reasoning to set learning goals.

    • Select and Facilitate rich tasks to provide opportunities for students to investigate, discuss, revise, expand, and refine their understanding of fractions.  

    • Use and connect multiple representations to develop deeper understanding.

    • Pose purposeful questions to develop students’ ability to reason with numbers, problem solve, and communicate mathematically.

    • Facilitate meaningful mathematical discourse.

    • Build procedural fluency through conceptual understanding.

Course Description
The purpose of this 2-day workshop is to build teachers' understanding of the progression in fractions and decimals, equip teachers with effective instructional strategies to build students' fractional/prportional reasoning and problem solving, and foster student-centered, discourse-rich learning environment.
