It’s time to talk fractions! Mark your calendar for a live Twitter #MathTalkChat with @Math_Solutions next Wednesday, January 25th at 8pm ET / 5pm PT.

Two participants will be randomly selected to receive copies of Sherry Parrish and Ann Dominick’s Number Talks: Fractions, Decimals, and Percentages, and Julie McNamara and Meghan M. Shaughnessy’s Beyond Pizzas & Pies and Beyond Invert & Multiply.

Join us for a lively discussion on strategies and techniques for teaching fractions in the classroom.

Chat with your fellow educators to
learn how to…

  • address students’ misconceptions about fractions;
  • develop instructional strategies and activities to engage students in learning fractions;
  • introduce fractions into your classroom number talks;
  • support fellow teachers with ideas and instructional strategies.
