                                  Fractions

Using and expanding the initial ideas presented at the Canberra Mathematics
Association Conference on 21st August 2009, this workshop demonstrates a highly
practical approach to teaching fractions for understanding.

It shows how to use simple to create models to enhance a deep understanding of
part whole relationships and how these models can aid in calculations within
families of fractions. A powerful tool to enhance mental calculatory skills with
fractions as well as forming the basis for written methods.

Starting with mental calculation, we will work through addition, subtraction and then
on to multiplicative processes.

Workshop covers educational theory behind how students learn, common
misconceptions about fractions and demonstrates an approach that is engaging and
enjoyable.
