enTeaching Fractions with Understanding: Part-Whole Relationship
http://curriculumtopicstudy.org/products/mathematics-cts/supplement/teaching-fractions-understanding-part-whole-relationship
<p>This web-based article, from The Millennium Project in the UK, identifies perspectives through which children see fractions. It can be used with CTS Sections II or IV or the B2 Fractions Module in the CTS Mathematics Leader's Guide. http://nrich.maths.org/2550</p>

http://curriculumtopicstudy.org/products/mathematics-cts/supplement/uncovering-student-thinking-mathematics-25-k-12-formative-assess
<p>The 10 assessment probes in the "Number and Operations" section of this book can be used as a CTS application to examine student thinking after conducting a CTS. Additionally, the teacher background notes provide valuable information on instructional implications (CTS Section II) and research on learning (CTS Section III). For example, the "Comparing FRactions" probe can be used with the "Fractions" CTS to examine student work related to part-whole relationships when comparing fractions.</p>

http://curriculumtopicstudy.org/products/mathematics-cts/supplement/young-mathematician-work-fractions-decimals-and-perent-3rd-serie
<p>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.</p>

http://curriculumtopicstudy.org/products/mathematics-cts/supplement/how-students-learn-mathematics-classroom
<p>How Students learn uses the principles and findings from How People Learn within the context of the mathematics classroom. An introduction to the principles as they apply to mathematics is included in chapter 2, whole numbers at the elementary level is the focus of chapter 3, rational numbers at the middle level is the focus of chapter 4 and chapter 5 focuses on functions at the high school level. This would be an additional reference to sections II, III and IV.</p>

http://curriculumtopicstudy.org/products/mathematics-cts/supplement/how-students-mis-understand-science-and-mathematics
<p>The authors propose 'intuitive rules' that students use to reason about mathematics and science concepts. The book provides many examples how these rules can be used to interpret the misconceptions many students have about mathematical concepts. This resource book can be used to supplement the readings from section IV.</p>

http://curriculumtopicstudy.org/products/mathematics-cts/supplement/connecting-develop-computational-fluency-fractions
<p>This article describes developing fluency with addition and subtraction of fractions by focusing instruction on the big idea of operating with like-size units. A sequence progression of addition and subtraction problems as well as some samples of student work is illustrated. This resource could be using to supplement section II.</p>
