This short course is aimed at teachers who are currently teaching Grades 4 to 6 mathematics who require up-skilling in fraction concepts and computation and would also benefit teachers wanting to improve their pedagogy in mathematics. The teachers who register for this course may have a wide range of experience and subject knowledge in the discipline.

The purpose of the course is to revise, develop and consolidate subject knowledge of fraction concepts and computation as a teacher. The topics covered include ideas that are important if you are to develop a correct conceptual understanding of fractions and fraction computation. This understanding will enable participants to solve fraction problems and practice instructional approaches that underpin conceptual development in fraction concepts and computation.
