Kolstad, Rosemarie; And Others
Reading Improvement, v30 n3 p180-83 Fall 1993
Suggests that a superior way of teaching fractions is to assist learners to conceptualize fractions, especially to grasp the varied meaning of fractions. Advocates using hands-on procedures, gives three different meanings of the concept "fraction," and explains how to teach children the deeper meaning of numberline subunits, fractions as division, and fractions as ratios.
