Fractions are Hard!
After much mulling and more mulling, here is my take on: Why Fractions are so Hard and Why it is So Hard to Teach Them.
Fractions are slippery and tricky and, in the end, abstract. It is actually a bit unfair to expect students to have a good grasp of fractions during their middle-school and high-school years. This pamphlet explains why, and offers the means to have an honest conversation with students as to why this is the case. Their confusion and haziness about them is well founded!
