# Upcoming Conferences

2017 T3 International Conference – March 10-12, 2017, Chicago, IL

**Sessions**: **Building a Bridge from Fractions to Ratios and Proportions **“The study of ratios and proportional relationships extends students’ work in measurement and in multiplication and division in the elementary grades.” Participants will explore the differences and similarities between ratios and fractions as well as the connections between ratios and prior work with multiplication, division, and measurement. See how using the kinesthetic and visual qualities of the TI-Nspire app technology can support building ratio sense with attention to quantities and change. The shift from the consideration of quantities in relative terms rather than absolute terms and the shift from additive reasoning to multiplicative reasoning will be investigated.

**Multiple Tools for Multiple Modalities of Learning for Young Mathematicians** – Developing number sense is foundational for beginning mathematicians in the primary years. Participants will see how using multiple modalities of learning to support the development of deeper understandings and building fluency. Participants will engage with multiple tools of investigation as they experience an activity focused around building numeracy. The tools used will include the 100 chart, a piece of children’s literature, manipulatives, and the TI-15.

**Strengthening Students’ Understanding of Fractions** – As elementary and middle grades students develop an understanding the number system, they must have a strong concept of fractions as numbers. In this webinar, we will explore a series of dynamic, interactive TI-Nspire simulations that help students cultivate a deeper understanding of equivalence, ordering, and operations with fractions. Using pictorial representations, students will learn how to use equivalence as a strategy to add and subtract fractions while they apply previous understandings of

multiplication and division to fractions. See how TI-Nspire technology can better prepare students for later extensions of the number system, such as rational, irrational and complex numbers.
