Product Description

Presenter: Arlene Mitchell, RMC Research Corporation, Denver, CO

Grade Band: Grades 4-8

Description: Fractions are a rich part of mathematics and the understanding of fractions is essential for algebra and other advanced areas of mathematics. Teaching fractions is both important and challenging, yet this complex topic causes more trouble for elementary and middle school students than any other area of mathematics. Fractions tend to be manipulated by rote rather than making sense of the concepts and procedures. Greater understanding of fractions, knowledge of students’ conceptions and misconceptions about fractions, and effective practices for teaching fractions are critically important for this challenging area of mathematics instruction. This E-Seminar will concentrate on developing mathematical and instructional knowledge of fractions, ratios, and proportional thinking to improve students’ understanding of fractional concepts and procedures.

Note: You will receive a recording of this E-Seminar as well as a Site Facilitator Guide.

Visible Thinking in the K-8 Mathematics Classroom
Seeing is believing with this interactive approach to math instruction!

Do you ever wish your students could read each other's thoughts? Now they can—and so can you! Veteran mathematics educators Ted Hull, Don Balka, and Ruth Harbin Miles explain why making students' thought processes visible is the key to effective mathematics instruction. Their newest book contains numerous grade-specific sample problems and instructional strategies for teaching essential concepts such as number sense, fractions, and estimation.
Focus in Grade 4: Teaching with Curriculum Focal Points
The goal of each grade specific book in the Teaching with Curriculum Focal Points series is to present the mathematics in each of the Focal Points in more detail. Follow an instructional progression from introducing and building concepts to developing depth of understanding to strengthing fluency.$36.95
Developing Essential Understanding of Multiplication and Division for Teaching Mathematics in Grades 3-5
Move beyond the mathematics you expect your students to learn.

"Unpacking" the ideas related to multiplication and division is a critical step in developing a deeper understanding. To those without specialized training, may of these ideas might appear to be easy to teach. But those who teach in grades 3-5 are aware of their subtleties and complexities.
Navigating through Number and Operations in Grades 3-5 (with CD-ROM)
Activities in this book invite students to use fraction circles to compare fractions and dot arrays to explore multiplication and the distributive property. The authors present many other hands-on approaches as well.$46.95
Cartoon Corner
Cartoon Corner provides cartoons collected and adapted from the popular "Cartoon Corner" in Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, adding notes from teachers who field-tested the questions and solutions with their students.$28.95
Making Sense Fractions, Ratios and Proportions, 64th Yearbook (2002)
NCTM's 2002 Yearbook emphasizes that although fractions, ratios, and proportions are pivotal concepts in the middle school, their development and understandings begin in the elementary school.$39.95
Achieving Fluency: Special Education and Mathematics
"Is it a learning disability or a teaching disability?"

Achieving Fluency presents the understandings that all teachers need to play a role in the education of students who struggle: those with disabilities and those who simply lack essential foundational knowledge. This book serves teachers and supervisors by sharing increasingly intensive instructional interventions for struggling students on essential topics aligned with NCTM's Curriculum Focal Points, the new Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, and the practices and processes that overlap the content. These approaches are useful for both overcoming ineffective approaches and implementing preventive approaches.
