Exploring fractions and misconceptions Submitted by Helen Holt on 25 May 2011. This is a PowerPoint presentation to use when teaching or revising the basic concepts of fractions and exploring common misconceptions held by students.... This article explores the connections between the measurement of length, number lines and fractions. The strong links between length concepts and the number line can be utilised by teachers to improve student understanding of fractions as measures, and correct common misconception about â€¦

**Learning from misconceptions in mathematics global**

16/08/2012Â Â· Students'common misconceptions about fractions Believing that fractions' numerators and denominators can be treated as separate whole numbers. Students often add or subtract the numerators and denominators of two fractions (e.g., 2/4 + 5/4 = 7/8 or 3/5 â€“ 1/2 = 2/3).... For most of mathematics through calculus, it happens that misconceptions about fractions provide the root source of many student difficulties. Many of these problems come from fractions not being properly understood. a. Example. Operations. Incorrect cancelling of ab c b to obtain a c b. Example. Working with large numerators and denominators rather than reducing: when multiplying fractions
