Fractions have different rules for naming, quantifying, ordering, adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing, etc. Students will need to develop an understanding of these rules and be able to apply them when working with fractions. Using a variety of visual and numerical representations for fractions can support students to build up experiences with the different areas of fractions (fractional constructs).Underlying the development of fractional thinking is a number system that is different from the numbers that students have already had experience with.
