Episode 6 - Contexts for Learning Fractions
04.21.2019 - By The Build Math Minds Podcast
Welcome fellow Recovering Traditionalists to Episode 6 where we take a look at Contexts for Learning Fractions.
Today we are talking about a quote from Young Mathematicians at Work: Constructing Fractions, Decimals, and Percents by Cathy Fosnot and Maarten Dolk. The Young Mathematicians at Work series developed a lot of my understanding of mathematical big ideas, but in this episode I wanted to highlight a part of the book that talks about using contextual situations as application versus construction.
