Description

Past participants of the PANL project will remember that there are 5 predictors of potential poor mathematics (number) performance that can be spotted from K - 2. Beyond year 2 are two of the strongest predictors of future performance in number; one of these two being fractions. In this short two-day course participants will be exposed to different aspects of fractions and be provided with a variety of tasks to assess fraction knowledge and to address any misconceptions.
