This week Nic Gilbertson and Eryn Stehr will practice their presentations for Math in Action (which will be February 21st at Grand Valley State University).
Fraction Multiplication and Division using a Measurement Perspective: We will explore hands-on activities that use spatial measurement to support conceptual understanding of multiplication and division of fractions.
Fraction Multiplication and Division using Virtual Measurement Models: Explore applets to support conceptual understanding of fraction multiplication using length, area, and volume models. Discuss how these applets can be used with students. (Please bring a web-capable device.)
