Great idea! There are lots of teachers and mathematics educators that could contribute to that book.

Not yet. We are curious the different ways teachers could use them. We were considering how teachers would use the cards and make modifications based on their students' interests and cultural identities.

So how could we consider thinking about how fractions are used in those contexts for elementary students? I think it's possible to expand how we contextualize fractions.

Thank you for sharing your experience. I had a very similar experience of knowing procedurally how to operate on fractions.

and I were working on ways to see how teachers used those in their instruction. We have them in English and Spanish so the lots of possibilities.

I honestly learned so much about fractions from listening to children solve fractions problems in novel ways during my 5 years working on and Vicki Jacobs project. I incorporate choral counts, number talks, which one doesn't belong, & true false equations.

I think students don't see fractions as quantities because when they are first introduced to fractions though geometric shapes, students do not make those connections. However when we use contexts reflective of students' lived experiences i think that helps.

Yes. We need to get to heart of helping our students conceptually understand fractions by providing rich contexts (reflective of their own cultural practices) to increase student achievement.

YES!!!!! Community fractions! What are they? Why do they matter? What about different professions that use fraction concepts that are applicable in elementary contexts? Can you tell I am excited?

Yes! In Extending Children's Mathematics by & , they discuss starting with partitive division or equal sharing problems and provide other contexts.

I wonder if you could have them show things that they have to share with others. You can ask them how many people they have to share it with and what would happen with the leftover?
