Uncomplicating Fractions to Meet Common Core Standards in Math, K-7

Availability: Ready to download

The Common Core State Standards for Mathematics challenges students to become mathematical thinkers, not just mathematical "doers." In her new resource, professional developer Marian Small shows teachers how to uncomplicate the teaching of fractions by focusing on the most important fraction ideas that students need to grasp. The book is organized by grade level beginning The Common Core State Standards for Mathematics challenges students to become mathematical thinkers, not just mathematical "doers." In her new resource, professional developer Marian Small shows teachers how to uncomplicate the teaching of fractions by focusing on the most important fraction ideas that students need to grasp. The book is organized by grade level beginning with Grade 1, where the first relevant standard is found in the geometry domain, and ending with Grade 7, where the focus is on operations with rational numbers and proportional thinking. In each section the relevant standard is presented, followed by a discussion of important underlying ideas associated with that standard, as well as some thoughtful, concept-based questions that can be used for classroom instruction, practice, or assessment. Underlying ideas include: Background to the mathematics of the standard. Suggestions for appropriate representations for specific mathematical ideas, including equations, drawings, and manipulatives. Suggestions for explaining ideas to students. Cautions about misconceptions or situations to avoid. This accessible book provides math teachers with support for differentiated instruction. Math coaches can use it to assist teachers with their transition to the Common Core State Standards. All teachers will find it helpful to see the mathematical fraction learning that precedes and follows the grades that they teach. It is also an excellent text for preservice teachers as they prepare themselves and their students to understand and teach math with a deep level of understanding.

    The book is a good resource for teaching. I do wish it was longer, more models, and maybe a CD or DVD that explains some of the models and shows teaching of them. I often spent a lot of the time in the book thinking about how I could implement the models and teach them well. I read up to 5th grade. I definitely will be using this in the future!

    Pretty good resource. I read all the way up to 6th grade and it is important to see how the standards build. Some of it seemed very rushed and I was hoping for more models.
