WA: Fixing Misconceptions in Fractions, Thursday 15 June 2023 – hosted by North Harrisdale Primary School

June 15, 2023 @ 8:45 am - 3:00 pm


Why do kids keep forgetting fractions?

Misconceptions block their learning



Fractions is one of the most difficult topics for students to really understand.

In this one-day workshop with Tierney Kennedy, teachers will learn how to diagnose and address misconceptions in fractions for good.


During this one-day PD, your staff will:

  • Watch a live demonstration lesson with students, including diagnosing and confronting underlying misconceptions;
  • Learn how to use conceptual change approaches to find and fix persistent misconceptions in fractions; and
  • Learn how to use simple diagnostic tasks to find where their students are stuck.

Sessions include:

Common misconceptions, developmental sequencing, diagnostic tasks and questioning for conceptual change, as well as how to teach difficult concepts such as operations, equivalence, conversion and relative size so they stick.
