Upper elementary & middle school math teachers who are TIRED of spending HOURS searching for fraction strategies & materials….
…you can STOP SEARCHING…I’ve done the searching and researching for you!
Find all your RESOURCES IN ONE PLACE with this program, so you can SAVE TIME, love teaching fractions, and help your students on the path TO FRACTION MASTERY.
The Program, Fractions: From Foundations to Operations…
OR not so much?
Every time fractions pop up, do your students freeze and say things like:
And then, maybe they give up. They write an answer that has a fraction in it and move on.
And you have SO much to cover… you don’t have time to get to the root understandings of all the fraction things. Does this sound familiar?
If your 5th, 6th, 7th, or even 8th-graders are having trouble with foundational fraction concepts and fraction operations, maybe it’s time to switch things up.
You CAN help your students feel comfortable with fractions and begin mastering fractions…
…without YOU feeling overwhelmed, stressed, OR spending HOURS searching for help.
Let’s think about this a little more…
Fractions ARE Hard
Let’s face it, many students struggle with fractions and fraction operations at some point.
You probably see this struggle every year. (And the past couple of years have NOT helped!)
If students are taught procedurally rather than conceptually, they can easily get confused when they learn procedures for new operations.
And many of your students may have been taught with just procedures before they came to you.
BUT, it’s not too late to help your upper elementary and middle school math students get on the right track with their fractions.
Why is Teaching Fraction Operations Such a Challenge??
Let’s be honest: there’s a good chance you were never taught HOW to teach fractions and fraction operations!
A survey of math teachers revealed that their undergraduate programs didn’t really prepare them to teach math in general, much less prepare them to teach fraction operations with a conceptual approach.
In Number Talks, Fractions, Decimals, and Percentages, the authors cite a study by Li and Smith (2007) that states:
They concluded that teachers’ lack of conceptual understanding affects students’ understanding of what fraction division means.
If you want to help your students….
Understand what fraction operations mean so they can successfully complete and explain operations with fractions….and ace their assessments!
Improve their fraction flexibility and develop a deeper understanding of number relationships.
Retain their understanding throughout the year, feeling more confident and less stressed when they see fractions in other contexts…
…..you’re in the right place
Is This Program Right for You?
This program is meant for you if you’re an upper elementary or middle school math teacher and…
you’re sick and tired of scouring the internet, looking for fraction tips and piecing together ways to help your students
you’re looking for new ways to teach ANY of the fraction operations
you need tools to close students’ fraction gaps
you want to see your students’ confidence grow as they develop a deeper understanding of what fractions are and what fraction operations mean
you’re willing to start ‘weaving’ fractions into math class when you aren’t ‘teaching fractions’
In This Program, You’ll Learn About…
Including representations along with computation when teaching all of the fraction operations
Incorporating review of foundational fraction concepts when teaching fraction operations
Activities that help students explore fractions and fraction operations to find meaning. Word problem contexts are used in each module.
Weaving fractions into class when you aren’t ‘teaching fractions,’ to reduce time gaps students often experience before getting back to fractions at a new grade level.

Frequently Asked Questions
Answer: Yes. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Answer: Yes! You may only be required to teach fraction division (as I did in 6th grade), but you may end up reteaching addition, subtraction or multiplication when students encounter fractions in other contexts (like solving equations).
Answer: Yes! When you finish the program, you’ll receive a certificate showing you completed 12 hours of online learning.
Answer: Yes! All modules will be available as soon as you enroll and you can access any lessons and resources immediately.
Answer: As long as the program exists (the lifetime of the program).
Answer: I am always available, via email or in the course discussion area on Thinkific. Other members are also available in the Facebook group.
Answer: Definitely! If you’re a parent supporting a child who would benefit from supplemental work with fraction concepts (or you’re a homeschooling parent), this program will be helpful.
