Fractions Parent Workshops with Ms. Van Duzer, for grades 4 and 5
It's fractions season in our upper grade classrooms!
But what is a "fractional unit"?
Why is "2 out of 3" not a good way to describe the fraction 2/3?
Where do fractions live on the number line, and why is that important?
In this session, math coach Kim Van Duzer and classroom teachers will walk you through the models, language and concepts surrounding fractions in 4th or 5th grade math homework. We'll offer suggestions for ways to approach fractions concepts with your child, and spend some time doing sample homework assignments and clarifying understandings.
