Connecting to Develop Computational Fluency with Fractions

Nancy Mack 

November 2004, Volume 11, Issue 4, Page 226

Abstract:
How intermediate-grade students developed computational fluency for the addition and subtraction of fractions by focusing on the idea of operating on like-sized units and looking for similarities between problems and solution strategies. Teachers will learn how to use these problems and solution strategies in the classroom to reach a variety of diverse learners.
