Modeling Students' Mathematics Using Steffe's Fraction Schemes

  • Modeling Students' Mathematics Using Steffe's Fraction Schemes

    Anderson Norton and Andrea McCloskey
    Descriptions and examples of Steffe's fractions schemes, which characterize common conceptions of fractions among children. These schemes are to be used as insights into student's reasoning so teachers can help guide and develop their students fractional awareness or clear up student's misconceptions.
