Abstract

In this session, the presenters will demonstrate formative assessment tasks used with pre-service teachers. These tasks are designed to develop a conceptual knowledge of fractions and fraction operations so that this knowledge with transfer to algebraic fractions and operations. Fraction Bars and Fraction Circles will be used along with number lines in order to make sense of fraction definitions and operations. Mathematical Communication while connecting algorithms with the models will be emphasized.
