An Overview of Fraction Interventions for Struggling Learners (SY029)

Tuesday, February 26, 2019
11:30 AM–12:50 PM

  • PMD: 3
  • Skill Level: Introduction

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. identify two methods of representing fractions and their effectiveness for students with math difficulties.
  2. implement a tablet based intervention which addresses fraction magnitudes and quantity comparisons.
  3. discuss effective methods to enhance students’ fraction fluency through tier II interventions.


The symposium will include three papers that examine fraction interventions for students who experience math difficulties. The first paper discusses a review of Tier 2 fraction interventions. The remaining papers present the results of two studies that employed different strategies for improving student rational number knowledge, one using representational models and the other using a tablet app. An expert in mathematics intervention will discuss and synthesize implications for practitioners.

Convention session locations are only viewable for convention attendees. Locations will be available/visible Monday, February, 25 2019.
