Singapore Math in Hawai'i

This course is in two parts. On the first day we focus on pre-fraction ideas i.e. ideas learnt in the early grades which are important in the learning of fraction as well as basic concept of fractions. We also examine fraction topics typically taught in lower primary levels i.e. grades one to three. On the second day we focus on topics taught in the upper primary levels such as division of fractions.

See photographs of the flipcharts at MCI's Facebook.

Both sets of slides are available here. A related question at another blog.
