MetadataShow full item record
Math Education has been a major topic of debate within the education sphere for years now, especially since the introduction of the Common Core State Standards. These standards have been met with mixed reviews. This research begins by analyzing the standards concerning fractions in third, fourth, and fifth grade and determining how it fits with the four domains of mathematical understanding these. It then goes on to an in-depth look at Eureka Math curriculum concerning fractions looking at both its alignment to the Common Core State Standards and its contribution to developing conceptual understanding, one of the four domains of mathematical understanding. Eureka Math was chosen, because it is a free curriculum available for download online, which makes it a lucrative resource for teachers.
