I am enrolled in a CGI (cognitivly guided instruction) course which is trying to develop a method of teaching fraction division with understanding. Most people invert and multiply to obtain a correct answer. Why? I would like help in understanding this method that includes pictures and algorithms that illustrate reasoning and depend on understanding.Please E-mail your response to:
There is also a note in the Resource Room called Understanding Fractions that may help.
