Grades 3-6: Developing Strategies & Big Ideas in Fractions

Type of PD: 3-Day Institute  
Institute Dates: 11/29/16, 12/13/16, 1/10/17 
Location: The Clinton School For Writers and Artists: 10 E 15th St, New York, NY 10003
Time: 8:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. (1 hour lunch break included) 

Cost: $750 per person

Who should attend: All Math Educators Grades 3-6, including Teachers, Special Education Teachers, and Coaches in the grade levels.


The sessions will give educators in Grades 3-6 an opportunity to explore:

  • Their own mathematical content knowledge and problem-solving habits of mind.
  • The Landscape of Learning, which is comprised of the foundational big ideas in division and how these are directly related to (and essential for) developing students’ understanding of fractions.
  • The role of rich tasks in developing the big ideas and strategies in fractions.
  • The role of mathematical models (e.g., the double number line, the array, the ratio table) to support and deepen students’ fraction knowledge.
  • Different kinds of fraction problems to help educators construct an understanding of specific models (e.g., part-whole, fraction as division, etc.).
  • How to incorporate the use of the CCSS Mathematical Practices through talk moves.
  • Assessment tools to track student learning in multiplication and division.
  • Video examples of key division and fractions lessons.

Participants will leave with:

  • A clear understanding of the Landscape of Learning (a developmental trajectory to help educators assess student reasoning in fractions).
  • A repertoire of rich tasks that can be used to build the connection between division and fractions.
  • Specific assessments that can be used to examine students’ understanding of division and fractions.
