Early Predictors of Math Success | Educating in a digital world | Scoop.it
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
