## Description

### Class Experience

```By the end of the course, students will have their own fraction strips and knowledge of how to use them to solve for various problems.
Students who struggle to make sense of what fractions are and how to solve problems using fractions will gain an understanding of the way fractions work (for example, when I solve 6 divided by 2 it equals 3.  When I solve 1/2 divided by 1/4 it equals 2.  2 is larger than either fraction and I will explain why).  ```
`I have been teaching for 12 years in various capacities.  3 years ago I transitioned from the classroom to online teaching and I absolutely love it.  I believe that hands-on, visual learning is the way the majority of us learn, and by having something they can touch and move around will enable them to understand how fractions work.  By making the strips themselves, they will gain more understanding.`
`There will be no homework although students will be able to review lessons taught during the day by using their fraction strips.`
```Please have
✅12 strips of paper, 2 in each color (doesn't matter which color) ready to go.  Ideally, this would be a long piece of construction paper divided into 2-3 inch strips on the long side
✅a pen or sharpie
✅and scissors.```
`In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:Kahoot!`
`We will end each day by playing a game.  Kahoot! will be one day, so please make sure you have Kahoot downloaded on a different device prior to the class.`
`3 hours 40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.`
