This study examined the use of the set, area, and linear models of fraction representation to enhance elementary students’ conceptual understanding of fractions. Students’ preferences regarding the set, area, and linear models of fractions during independent work was also investigated. This study took place in a 5th grade class consisting of 21 students in a suburban public elementary school. Students participated in classroom activities which required them to use manipulatives to represent… CONTINUE READING
