Understanding Fractions: Area and Linear ModelsSchool Science and Mathematics Association Annual Convention (SSMA) (2014)
With the Common Core State Standards being implemented in most states, teachers are expected to introduce fractions in a way that aligns with these standards. This workshop will discuss two different types of models – area and linear. Participants will create different models, and be shown how to use them in their classroom.
