"Maths Doesn't Have to Hurt"

Announcements

 Online Professional Learning with Rob Vingerhoets and Michael Minas

Fractions, Decimals, & Percentages

 

2021 is already coming to a close – where did the time go?!
If you’re needing to fit in some professional learning before the year’s end, or looking for ways to help your students get their heads around fractions, decimals, and percentages, check out the upcoming webinars for this month!
Sometimes it’s our impression that fractions, decimals, and percentages are too hard and that kids will find it too difficult. The good news is that it doesn’t have to be that way! In the end, it’s just stuff that’s smaller than one, or stuff that’s between the ‘big’ numbers – and life is full of stuff smaller than a whole number. The upcoming October webinars for Foundation to Year 6 will provide a very useful perspective on fractions, decimals, and percentages, including how they operate on their own and how they interrelate with each other. You’ll also gain some highly effective, engaging, and worthwhile activities and problems that will develop your students’ concepts and skills, and highlight how fractions, decimals, and percentages ‘live’ in measure, geometry, and statistics and probability.
Be sure to book yourself in for valuable professional learning in an online setting!
4:00pm October 11th – Foundation to Year 2: book here! 
4:00pm October 19th – Years 3 to 6: book here!
