# The Young Mathematician at Work: Fractions, Decimals and Perent (3rd in a series of 3 volumes)

Each book in this series of three illuminates the progression of strategies, the development of big ideas and the mathematical models that children construct. The first volume focuses on how young children develop an understanding of number, addition and subtraction. The second volume focuses on how students develop an understanding of multiplication and division. The third volume highlights how students develop an understanding of fractions, decimals and percents. Each volume highlights strategies, models and big ideas through classroom examples, samples of student work, anecdotes and illustrations. Each volume can be used to further illustrate readings from section II, III and IV.
