Connecting Academics & Parents (CAP) Fractions


In 3rd grade students are developing understanding of fractions. Previously in 1st & 2nd grade they have decomposed shapes into equal parts and described them using fraction language, but in 3rd grade is the first year they represent the fractions numerically with both a numerator and denominator.

CAP Parent Trainings (Connecting Academics & Parents) were created to increase teacher knowledge of different concepts and also could be used to train parents on how to help their child at home. The fraction training is a great one to deepen everyone’s knowledge of understanding fractions.
