Understanding Multiplication & Division of Fractions

Workshop Description

Understanding fractions as numbers and understanding operations with fractions have been areas of mathematics proven to be difficult for students to master and for teachers to teach. During this one-day workshop, we will extend the learning from the CMSE Understanding Fractions Institute to dig more deeply into the multiplication and division of fractions. Participants will use hands-on and visual representations to investigate ways to help students understand how these operations with fractions relate to operations with whole numbers. 

This session will be offered three times in different locations throughout the state in September.  We hope you can join us!
