We need to be teaching Fractions for conceptual understanding
Think hard about teaching fractions while you watch Dina Mendola’s session,
The Struggle is Real: Fear Not the Fraction.
The tasks and materials we present to students have a huge impact on the connections they make.
Teaching fractions for conceptual understanding is a must!
And we must first develop that understanding for ourselves.
Graham Fletcher: Making Sense of Fraction Progressions

Another great resource for our own learning is
Graham Fletcher’s Progression of Fractions video. It is only 7- minutes long, but you can find many more progression videos here.
