Full Description

Beyond Pizzas & Pies is all about building a foundational understanding of fractions

This book helps teachers and students understand fractions as numbers, including the use of equivalency and thinking about benchmark numbers, so that when students start to compute with fractions (see the companion volume, Beyond Invert & Multiply), they have a solid foundation.

You’ll find:

  • Classroom Scenarios that address common challenges students (and teachers!) encounter as they acquire an understanding of fractions
  • What’s the Math? sections intended to clarify the mathematics
  • What’s the Research? insights that show why “that’s the way we’ve always done things” might not be the most successful approach
  • Classroom Activities with friendly, step-by-step instructions and video clips demonstrating how to teach the concepts
  • Reproducibles that are available in a downloadable format
  • Study Questions at the end of each chapter that encourage readers to set concrete goals for implementing what they’ve read

This resource features 30 streaming video clips filmed in actual classrooms so you can see this work in action.
