Is it possible that 3/5 was created as a notation first and later it was realized that it unifies with division? <br />I find it unlikely Amlesh Kanekarhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/15136851515694063696noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3565134563275828351.post-78942502574199961212017-06-23T01:24:00.349-07:002017-06-23T01:24:00.349-07:00From couple of Parents ---

I think that the way you make them talk about their solutions is great. That is the need of the hour.

Even I found the same. Rather using rectangles and circles to devide i use roti to be devided equally..... eg. 2/3 two rotis shared equally between three kids then what will be share of each kid?<br />This help them estimate the size of the fraction. <br /><br />The way you probe is really nice, it helps atudents to reflect on their own thoughtPralhad Katholehttps://www.blogger.com/profile/01451221558895686892noreply@blogger.com
