Make connections from the relational thinking behind proportional reasoning and represent these number relationships as fractions. Join Kyle Pearce as we explore fractional thinking using tasks that are contextual, visual and concrete in order to examine fraction constructs, uncover multiple representations of fractions, and discover different perspectives that build the conceptual understanding behind the rules for multiplying and dividing fractions.
