Subject:  Developing Fraction Concepts 
Author:  tackweed 
Date:  Nov 4 2004 
I have currently started a supplemental class for 7th grade students who cannot
demonstrate proficiency in fraction operations.
Most of them do not know how to verbalize their concept of a fraction beyond
statments like 'part of a thing' and (interestingly) 'part of a number.'
I have tracked down a number of things about fractions and assembled them in an
arbitrary fashion at
http://www2.whidbey.net/ohmsmath/webwork/OL_Text/fractions.htm
I would appreciate if you could either supplement what is there or indicate
which approaches might be dead ends. I have more or less numbered the sections
for reference.
If you have other specific tools that would help deal with the concept of a
fraction, please include them.
I have one other link for converting fractions, but am not sure if that ties in
with the basic concepts or would be better elsewhere:

Thnak you for your help,
Jeff
