06. FRACTIONS ARE HARD! Here's Why and Here's What to Do About it | Math Conference 2023

Speaking: James Tanton

Are fractions "part of a whole"? Points on the number line? Are they numbers? Adding portions of pie makes sense, but multiplying 2/3 of a pie and 4/5 of a pie is meaningless! So, is the arithmetic of fractions we were taught relevant? This session is for all who want to make sense of fractions, once and for all! (Grades 3 - 6)
