Author:Catherine Johnson
Description: A collaborative weblog that began when Johnson's son "... finished out the school year with a 39 on his Unit 6 test, Fractions and Decimals.... Later on I discovered that fractions are the 'bottleneck' in elementary mathematics; lives are lost in the struggle to learn fractions." Johnson, mathematician Carolyn Johnston, and other members pursue three goals: "have fun, share ways of teaching kids math, and support people who want to help kids learn math." Register to participate in the bliki (part-blog, part-wiki) and discuss current issues in math teaching; read "Things We've Learned," "Recommended Reading," "Our Favorite Math Supplements for Kids," and more.
