[featured resource] Fractions: Teaching for Understanding

Jenni Way & Janette Bobis (Eds)

The anxiety that students (and teachers) experience with this core topic prompted the editors to bring together research on the teaching and learning of fractions. There are 18 carefully selected articles covering the key mathematical concepts, common student misunderstandings and strategies to correct them, the value of making connections to other topics, and the use of technology to support learning. There are many useful references, plus some student activities and classroom resources.
