Departmental Workshops - Structured professional development activities  

Departmental Workshops - Fractions

These workshops are written to provide your mathematics team with structured professional development you can deliver in-house utilizing all members' expertise and knowledge. We believe 3 – 6 modules per year could be an ideal balance.

Objectives related to this topic are:

  • add and subtract simple fractions and those with common denominators; multiply a fraction by an integer
  • add and subtract fractions by writing them with a common denominator; multiply and divide an integer by a fraction
  • use efficient methods to add, subtract, multiply and divide fractions, interpreting division as a multiplicative inverse; cancel common factors before multiplying or dividing
  • understand and apply efficient methods to add, subtract, multiply and divide fractions, interpreting division as a multiplicative inverse
