On Diagnosis and Intervention: Helping Students with Special Needs Learn Fraction Ideas Involving Decimal Numbers
Seah, Rebecca
Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia (MERGA) (35th, Singapore, Jul 2-6, 2012)
Despite the emphasis that children should have a robust sense of number and a thorough understanding of fraction (National Mathematics Advisory Panel, 2008), many students continue to struggle with these concepts. Booker Diagnostic Assessment Framework (Booker, 2011) can inform decision about teaching that improves students' learning outcomes. Focusing on decimal numbers, this paper reports how effective use of the framework and instructional materials can help three teachers challenge their students' misconceptions with mathematics, leading to improved learning outcomes.
