Micro-Credential #5: Developing Fraction Concepts

The K-12 educator will possess essential competencies in teaching fractions. They will demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of fractions as “fair shares” and components of a whole, recognizing these concepts as fundamental for building a strong mathematical foundation. Additionally, the educator will excel in guiding students who encounter challenges when working with fractions or decimals, skillfully redirecting them to concrete or visual representations to enhance their conceptual understanding.

In this course, you will:

  • Delve into foundational concepts and analyze the progression of fractions.
  • Explore and analyze picture books to develop a theory on connecting fractions to real-world concepts.
  • Develop a comprehensive understanding of how fraction lessons unfold.
  • Deepen your understanding of fraction concepts through reflection on your own experience as a learner of fractions.
  • Look at partial products as a tool for multiplying and explore the relationship between multiplication and division.
