The Association of Teachers of Mathematics in Maine (ATOMIM) is offering Dine & Discuss: Fractions Edition sessions focused on building developmental understanding of fractions from kindergarten through high school.

In this two-session series, participants will:

  • Learn about how the concept of fractions and rational numbers develop in the updated Maine Learning Results.
  • Follow fraction development from kindergarten through high school.
  • Review and recap the Standards for Mathematical Practice.
  • Network with colleagues from your region, and meet your District Rep and other ATOMIM Board members.
  • Engage in some sample tasks focused on reasoning about fractions and rational numbers.
  • Discuss implications for classroom practice.
  • Learn about resources to find some tasks to try with your students.
  • Two sessions totaling five hours of professional development.

Participants will need to attend both sessions to complete the series. The cost is $24 for ATOMIM members, and $44 for non-members (includes one-year membership) and includes two sessions, materials and a light dinner for each session.
