K-5 Mathematics Specialists' Teaching and Learning About Fractions


"This paper describes the fraction-based mathematical activities of two teachers who are part of a
Mathematics Specialist preparation program. Their work with fractions is traced from two perspectives:
1) their interactions with students as they struggle with fraction concepts; and, 2) their personal journeys
to develop deeper understandings of fractions as participants in the Rational Numbers course that is part
of their degree program. Through their stories, we gain a better understanding of the complex nature of
their work with students and how their participation in the Mathematics Specialist program helps
support their work in the school buildings."
