3. How?

1. Read my blog!
2. Read other peoples blogs.
3. Ask yourself “Does this stuff I teach make sense? Do I believe it? Would I believe it if I was the student and not the teacher?
4. Tell others.
and so on!!!!!

  1. Greetings! I came across your name and this site via the WatsonMath.com post entitled Fractions: The Gatekeeper to Algebra. I am a veteran middle grades teacher, and I have been working on a solution to the problem of teaching fraction arithmetic operations for several years. I would be honored to get your opinion on a unique system for hands-on learning that I have developed. Do you have the time and interest? Thank you in advance for considering my request.

  2. I have read a lot of commentary about various research studies linking a failure to understand fractions with the inability to learn algebra. this connection is plainly evident in to me, and I am hoping to improve my understanding of exactly what it is about arithmetic operations with fractions in particular that aids in developing algebraic reasoning.
    the latest emphasis here in the US is on the use of fraction strips for comparing magnitudes and ordering fractions on the number line–as if that is the primary source of the problem, but I remain unconvinced.
