Putting Essential Understanding of Fractions into Practice in Grades 3-5
What tasks can you offerwhat questions can you askto determine what your students know or don’t knowand move them forward in their thinking?
This book focuses on the specialized pedagogical content knowledge that you need to teach fractions effectively in grades 3–5. The authors demonstrate how to use this multifaceted knowledge to address the big ideas and essential understandings that students must develop for success with fractionsnot only in their current work, but also in higher-level mathematics and a myriad of real-world contexts.
Common Core Mathematics in a PLC at Work, Grades 3-5
How do you help your students demonstrate mathematical proficiency toward the learning expectations of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS)?
This teacher guide illustrates how to sustain successful implementation of the CCSS for mathematics for grades 3–5. Discover what students should learn and how they should learn it at each grade level, including deep support for the unique work for Number & Operations—Fractions in grades 3–5 and learning progression models that capstone expectations for middle school mathematics readiness.
