Average rating:4.7Number of reviews:(17)
In this 4-day camp, students will be able to recognize equivalent fractions, add and subtract fractions, learn how to convert improper fractions into mixed numbers, and multiply and divide fractions.

#### 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.`
```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!`

My name is Tamara and I would LOVE to be your teacher.  I earned my master's in education in 2013, but I have always had a soft spot for math.
