Kursinhalt

Make learning fractions, decimals and percentages easier for your students

Often, when teachers are asked which maths topic they find the most difficult to teach and for their students to learn, teachers say fractions.

On this course, you will explore why they find fractions difficult and consider new approaches and methodologies for teaching them that are easier to grasp for your students.

You will learn how to avoid teaching the subject in isolation as you approach fractions, decimals and percentages as three interconnected topics. This will help to give your students context and give them a deeper understanding of the maths structure behind fractions.

This course is designed for teachers and educators who don’t have a specialism in maths but wish to learn mathematical methods and improve their understanding.

This includes:

  • new teachers, student teachers or people just about to start their teaching career who are interested in increasing their mathematical subject knowledge
  • inexperienced teachers of mathematics for whom mathematics was not a major part of their degree
  • non-specialist teachers of mathematics whose expertise lies elsewhere.
  • teachers of science
  • teachers of technology, engineering, and other related subjects
  • parents wishing to support their children.
