EP 05 – Fractions: Equivalence, Addition & Subtraction

By Cathy Fosnot

It's time for another season of The Math Pod with Cathy Fosnot. In this series, Cathy and her team explore "Developing Automaticity of the Basic Facts and Computational Fluency using Strings of Related Problems". Join us for a six-week journey through the exploration of Mini-lessons, intentionally-crafted strings, and the fascinating world of Cathy's mathematics landscapes for elementary and middle school students.

Cathy Fosnot returns to The Math Pod to lead us in a conversation about representation of fractions and how powerful models (coins, clock, double number line, pick your price) can help students discover the connections between fractional equivalence as well as addition and subtraction of fractions.
