Understand students’ fraction concepts through interview tasks. Includes tasks and guide to record student thinking.
Lesson and Case Study
This case illustrates ways in which the teacher responded to two students’ use of informal knowledge to reason about the mathematics involved in equal sharing problems.
This case provokes teachers’ reflection of how being responsive to students’ own activity while solving problems can support understanding. Iteration is presented as a mechanism to support the unit fraction concept
This case presented is based on research that examined mathematical thinking of an elementary student with a visual/spatial processing disability along with teacher-student interactions.
