Fractions: Teacher's Manual - A Guide to Teaching Fractions in Irish Primary Schools
The aim of this resource is to assist teachers in teaching the strand unit of Fractions (1st to 6th class). This strand unit is not applicable for infant classes. The resource is intended to complement and support the implementation of the Primary School Mathematics Curriculum (PSMC) rather than replace it. By providing additional guidance in the teaching and learning of fractions, this resource attempts to illuminate a pedagogical framework for enhancing mathematical thinking, that is, methods of eliciting, supporting and extending higher-order mathematics skills such as reasoning; communicating and expressing; integrating and connecting; and applying and problem solving.
