Resources and Tools for Elementary Math Specialists and Teachers

This article is from the NCTM journal, Teaching Children Mathematics. For students to develop meaningful conceptions of fractions and fraction operations, they need to think of fractions in terms other than as just whole-number combinations. The authors, Daniel Siebert and Nicole Gaskin, suggest two powerful images for thinking about fractions that move beyond whole-number reasoning and can be used in the classroom to help support the teaching of fractions.
