EduGains has posted  new updates on their math Fractions: Learning and Teaching page:

Fractions Research Summary 
Use of the Fractions Learning Pathways tasks can increase student learning and close gaps for Junior and Intermediate students. A two page summary of the research process and findings to date is now available.

Check out page 2: WHAT ARE EIGHT CRITICAL COMPONENTS OF FRACTIONS TEACHING AND LEARNING?
  • Emphasize unit fractions
  • Use number lines and rectangles/ribbons
  • Have students partition figures and paper fold
  • Read a fraction as a number not two numbers
  • Punctuate instruction
  • Find a common unit rather than a common denominator
  • Mix proper and improper fractions in tasks
  • Annotate fractions to clarify

Check it out!
