It Figures...A new feature with highly regarded math resources just when you need them most!
Achieve the Core is a project of Student Achievement Partners. They are “A nonprofit dedicated to improving student achievement.” They focus on providing academic assistance for students who face barriers of racism, and poverty. Achieve the Core has resources for Mathematics and Literacy and are open sourced and free.
This link will take you to a Achieve the Core fraction feature. Fractions are an area that students struggle with, and as a result from lasting misconceptions. You will find resources, and tasks, both for face-to-face and virtual instruction for grades 3-6 and beyond.
I especially appreciate the “Fraction Guidance for Educators” section. When your students are wrestling with traditional methods that may interfere with their learning, this section gives alternative approaches.
