Why focus on fractions? Fractions is a high-priority topic for mathematics intervention classes. Struggling learners often lack understanding of foundational fraction concepts and this impacts their success in the middle grades. The course will focus on ways to build students’ understanding of foundational topics, such as equivalence and comparing, and of fraction operations.
