Making Connections
Pien, Cheng Lu; Dongsheng, Zhao
Mathematics Teaching, n223 p23-25 Jul 2011
Effective teaching includes enabling learners to make connections within mathematics. It is easy to accord with this statement, but how often is it a reality in the mathematics classroom? This article describes an approach in "connecting equivalent" fractions and whole number operations. The authors illustrate how a teacher can combine a common approach to fraction equivalence and whole number multiplication and division. (Contains 7 figures.)
