Fractions, Decimals & Percents: Looking at Models & Big Ideas
Focus on: Grades 3 - 6
Course Number: TEED652N
This course will examine how children construct an understanding of fractions, decimals, and percents. We will look at various visual models that help students make sense of these topics. We'll examine big ideas and strategies central to fractions, decimals, and percents and look at ways to design a curriculum that elicits these models, big ideas, and strategies.
Throughout the entire day's discussions and activities, we will develop realistic contexts that allow students to connect fractions, decimals, and percents to the world outside of school.
