Rational Numbers Workshop – Mini-series

In this session, we will explore the development of rational numbers, through investigations and guided number strings. We will start with early fractions work exploring the emerging issues of fair sharing contexts. Then we will move on to a sequence of rich investigations that support students to reason about rational number as well as utilize the four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division). Throughout the mini-series workshops, we will focus on sense-­making models and contexts to support students.
