A Focus on Fractions is the first book to make cognitive research on how students develop their understanding of fraction concepts readily accessible and understandable to pre- and in-service K– 8 mathematics educators. This important resource assists teachers in translating research findings into their classroom practice by conveying detailed information about how students develop fraction understandings as well as common student misconceptions, errors, preconceptions, and partial understandings that may interfere with students learning. Using extensive annotated samples of student work, as well as vignettes characteristic of classroom teachers’ experiences, this book equips educators with knowledge and tools to reveal students’ thinking so that they can modify their teaching to improve student learning of fractions concepts.
A Focus on Fractions bridges the gap between what mathematics education researchers have discovered about the learning of fraction concepts and what teachers need to know to make effective instructional decisions.

"...Readers will find children's work presented in the book to be interesting and sometimes intriguing. The work provides insights into difficulties understanding fractions and ways to help children develop a better understanding of concepts. Primarily because of extensive samples of student work, this is a valuable book for mathematics educators involved in K-8 classrooms....Recommended."--CHOICE
"To watch teachers interact with the research and practical suggestions in this book is exhilarating. The real joy, however, is seeing them use this learned knowledge as they instruct their students. This is a book for all of us who have struggled to help students make sense of fractions."--Mary Montgomery Lindquist, Fuller E. Callaway Professor of Mathematics Education, Emeritus, Past President of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics
"A Focus on Fractions draws on research from mathematics education to produce a classroom-friendly system of formative assessment. Classroom teachers, mathematics educators, teacher education students, and researchers in the field will find what is in this book useful and interesting."-- Judith Zawojewski, Associate Professor, Illinois Institute of Technology
"This book is a tour de force in relating research and practice in mathematics education, and as such it should also be of great interest to researchers and graduate students in the field."--Edward A. Silver, William A. Brownell Professor of Education, University of Michigan
