We often hear from students and parents that they don’t like fractions. What if fractions were learned in a way that gives the student a way to discover relationships that exist in math making math not only fractions easier, but all math concepts easier? Participants will leave the session understanding the parts of a fraction and the function of each part. Participants will discover the answer to questions like: Why do you need a common denominator when adding fractions? How can you add, subtract, multiply or divide fractions using the same method whether the fraction has, numbers, letters (variables) or both? Participants will learn how to translate common English language used when speaking about fractions into math symbols that make sense and can be applied at any time.
