In this interactive class, students will use pattern blocks, base ten blocks, and other math models to investigate fractions.

Class experience

I have been teaching math for more than 25 years and I LOVE giving kids models that help them visualize and manipulate math concepts. Many times we learn things by memorizing them, but math requires that we truly understand if we are to excel at higher levels. A firm understanding of fractions is essential as students take on more and more complex problem solving situations and advanced coursework. Fractions also tend to "scare" some students and even some adults. I tutor a lot of nursing students when they take statistics, and I see this fear of fractions a LOT. Once I give them the blocks and lead them through some concrete exercises, their confidence and math skills take a giant leap forward! 
I will provide a pdf file of the workbook we will be using. You will need to print this for your student to have during the live meetings. Additionally, I will post problems each week for students who would like some extra practice.
You will need the following math manipulatives for the class:
1. Pattern Blocks
2. Cuisenaire Rods
3. Fraction Circles
4. 1" square tiles
Once you register I will send you a link to my Amazon Challenge Math list. You might also be able to find used manipulatives on eBay or on neighborhood garage sale websites.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students need to have basic skills in addition, subtraction, and multiplication. They also need an understanding of what it means to divide, but knowing long division is not necessary. Additionally, reading at a 2nd grade level or higher will allow students to get the most out of the class.
