T38 - Mathematical Literacy: NO FEAR FRACTIONS- Instructional Language Holds the Key!


Oct 27, 2016 4:30pm ‐ Oct 27, 2016 5:30pm

Standard: $20.00

Description

“Ours not to reason why, just invert and multiply.” Today’s standards-based math curriculum is not your father’s Oldsmobile. Students need to not only understand what they are doing but to explain the how and why of their solutions. Using a structured literacy approach, learn how to reason with fraction concepts and operations and then link them to decimals and percents using multiple representations and explicit instructional language. This workshop will include friendly fraction manipulatives for all. Get your “handy dandy decimal fraction creator” today.
