Developing Effective Fractions Instruction for K-8

The IES practice guide Developing Effective Fractions Instruction for Kindergarten Through 8th Grade provides five research-based recommendations for improving students’ understanding of fractions and rational numbers. Each recommendation includes a summary of the research evidence and a level of evidence rating. This Practice Guide is the foundation for the Doing What Works content on fraction instruction, which merges the five recommendations into four practices
  • Initial fraction concepts
  • Fractions as numbers
  • Operations with fractions
  • Ratio, rate, proportion

Looking for resources to help you implement the five recommendations?
The Doing What Works website for effective fractions instruction has more than you could hope for. Check it out today!
