Strengthening Students’ Understanding of Fractions with TI-Nspire™ Technology
Technology: TI‑Nspire™ Technology
Topic: Building Concepts
Speakers: Gail Burrill, Tom Dick
As elementary and middle grades students develop an understanding the number system, they must have a strong concept of fractions as numbers.
In this webinar, we will explore a series of dynamic, interactive TI-Nspire simulations that help students cultivate a deeper understanding of equivalence, ordering and operations with fractions. Using pictorial representations, students will learn how to use equivalence as a strategy to add and subtract fractions while they apply previous understandings of multiplication and division to fractions. See how TI-Nspire technology can better prepare students for later extensions of the number system, such as rational, irrational and complex numbers. (2014)Download documents
