With its beginnings in whole-number arithmetic understanding, Developing Fractions Knowledge is the most comprehensive look at fractions learning to date. It journeys with the practitioner and learner to view fractions as part-whole concepts, measures, and ultimately as numbers with meaning. The assessment and instructional tasks and practical connections to research and Math Recovery principles make it a must-have resource for educators to use again and again!-- Carolyn Olijnek
Developing Fractions Knowledge skilfully combines cutting-edge research with practical knowledge of the classroom to provide an essential resource for everyone interested in developing students' understanding of fractions. I can't wait to try some of the tasks and activities with students! -- Dr Janette Bobis, Professor in Mathematics Education,
All in, it was an enjoyable book (I have to admit thinking a book on fractions is not one I would choose) and I think would be a worthwhile investment for a department. -- N. G. Macleod
The book includes many example assessment tasks and instructional activities to use with pupils who are learning about fractions for the first time, as well as pupils who are struggling and working to relearn concepts.
This book provides a comprehensive look at fraction knowledge and understanding. It is a great book for anyone teaching primary maths at any age, but would also be appropriate for a longer-term, on-going departmental professional development. -- Matthew Reames
