The Development of Students' Knowledge of Fractions and Ratios.
Smith, John P., III
This paper provides some guidance as to what to listen for to help students make sense of expressions in ways that connect to their ideas and honestly address the mathematics of rational numbers. It offers a reasonable initial answer to the question, "Where do students' ideas about fractions and ratios come from, and how can we work productively with them in the classroom?" (KHR)
