“Oh no! Not fractions!” The anxiety that students (and teachers) experience with this core topic prompted the editors to bring together current research on the teaching and learning of fractions. There are 17 carefully selected articles covering the key mathematical concepts, common student misunderstandings and strategies to correct them, the value of making connections to other topics, and the use of technology to support learning. There are many useful references, plus some student activities and classroom resources. Whether it is teaching fractions through music or fairy tales, modelling proportional thinking or assessing students’ understanding of fractional equivalence, there is a wealth of information and inspiration.
