[Manhattan, part 1 of 2; Part 2: 2/1; Optional Part 3: 2/9]
The fraction progression in the Common Core is our best support as we help our students develop real mathematical understanding of fractions. We will develop our own understanding of this progression and consider how it guides our assessment and conferring. We will
• solve some problems together to develop our own sense of this progression.
• focus on tools and language that support our understanding of fractions.
• form a group to plan a lesson study where teachers will have the chance to observe conferring and try it themselves. Lesson study date TBD and is optional.
• an optional third session in Brooklyn on 2/9 (school TBD) will provide teachers an opportunity to confer with students.
