Understanding fractions are critical to future math and algebra success. What simple things can be done to help young learners today for their success tomorrow?
A look at a recent study on how "humans naturally develop numerical concepts" which hypothesized "that an early understanding of fractions could predict how well a student would perform in algebra and general mathematics later on." The post provides four suggestions on how to put this into practice:
* Make it visual
* Make it reflective
* Make it practical
* Make it ubiquitous
