Fractional Reasoning: Students with Learning Disabilities
Making sense of fractions can be challenging for students with learning disabilities. In this video presentation, we illuminate how our project is studying and supporting the development of conceptual understanding of fractions by students with learning disabilities (LD). Rather than focusing on whether students can or cannot develop conceptual understanding, our strengths based approach focuses on uncovering the complex understanding students DO have. We share what we have been learning, including previews into student thinking and the development of novel teaching methods that facilitate mathematics learning for this underserved population.
