Understanding Fractions, Decimals and Percentages: Visual Teaching Strategies
Presented by: Christine Lenghaus
For students to develop a deep understanding of mathematics and link big ideas, they need multiple representations of concepts and skills to make sense of what they are learning. Traditional maths teaching methods are heavily based on testing memory – rote or procedure, rather than understanding, resulting in students who don’t get a concept and are unable to keep up with their peer group. The Teaching Visual Strategies to Students to Enhance Understanding of Fractions, Decimals and Percentages workshop provides a systematic process and variety of visual strategies, focusing on matching visual and symbolic representations, which is the way any language is learned.
