This recording of a 45-minute webinar provides an introduction to the concepts and methods used in the Developing Fractions Sense A and B programs, intended for students in grades 3 & 4, and older students having difficulty with fractions. In order to provide our students with a deep conceptual understanding of fractions, it is essential to use visual fraction models, such as fraction blocks, rectangular grids and number lines. In the grade 3 overview, we focus on the meaning of a unit fraction, the meaning of a fraction, and fraction equivalence using models. In the grade 4 overview, we focus on addition and subtraction of mixed fractions having a common denominator, comparing fractions using benchmarks, and multiplication of fractions by a whole number.
