Oranges, Posters, Ribbons, and Lemonade: Concrete Computational Strategies for Dividing Fractions

  • Oranges, Posters, Ribbons, and Lemonade: Concrete Computational Strategies for Dividing Fractions

    Christopher Kribs-Zaleta
    How to help developing computational strategies for dividing fractions using concrete models developed by students. Sixth-grade students developed separate two-step procedures to solve measurement and partitive story problems, drawing on invented procedures for division of whole numbers. Includes eight story problems and selected student examples.
