Fractions knowledge by grade 5 uniquely predicts success in higher mathematics. Yet, assessments show that too many students struggle with this critical foundational math skill from grade 3 onward.
Fortunately, a growing body of academic research is uncovering instructional strategies that actually work.
Join us to explore the key difficulties students commonly experience with fractions and the latest research-supported approaches shown to overcome them. And see how applying adaptive, game-based technology to these strategies can better address individual students’ needs and create ongoing gains.
