The Equipartitioning Learning Trajectory: a K-5 Foundation for Rational Number Reasoning

via Independent

Overview

The Mathematics Learning Trajectories MOOC-Ed series presents Learning Trajectories (LT) as a framework for interpreting and implementing the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSS-M). Our first course introduces the Equipartitioning LT. Grounded in fair sharing activities that create equal-sized groups (from collections) or parts (from single wholes), Equipartitioning provides a robust foundation for students’ conceptual understanding of division, multiplication, fraction, and ratio. We recommend this course for elementary and middle grades educators seeking a deeper understanding of students’ learning of fundamental mathematics for their own instructional practice.

    I found the information very informative and it made me much more of this part of the math standards as well as give me a greater understanding of student thinking in this area.
