Extending Previous Understandings of Whole Number Operations and the Unit Fraction to Fraction Operations (3-5)

Time: 5 Hours

Description: The purpose of this session is to extend K-2 understanding of addition and subtraction and Grade 3's understanding of the unit fraction to Grade 4 and 5's addition and subtraction of fractions. These connections will be explicit, studied within the context of the curriculum, and opportunities to practice instruction of these concepts will be embedded within the session.
