Full Description

Beyond Invert & Multiply paves the way for success with fraction computation

This book builds on the foundational understandings that are described in Beyond Pizzas & Pies: 10 Essential Strategies for Supporting Fraction Sense and applies them to situations involving fraction computation.

You’ll find:

  • Classroom Scenarios that address common challenges students (and teachers!) encounter as they learn to operate with 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 more than 30 streaming video clips filmed in actual classrooms so you can see this work in action.

"When I see teachers and they talk to me about how much Beyond Pizzas & Pies has been a great support to them, the next question is usually, 'When are you going to author a book about computation? My students are starting to have foundational knowledge of fractions but they really have struggles with computation.' In answer to teachers’ needs, I’m excited to welcome you to Beyond Invert & Multiply." (Julie McNamara, author of Beyond Invert & Multiply and coauthor of Beyond Pizzas & Pies)
