Here’s what past participants have said about the Foundations of Fractions workshop…
Graham’s deep understanding of the adult learner allows him to bring the same level of engagement and enthusiasm to his sessions that are the hallmark of classes investigating his 3-act lessons. Not only did teachers walk away with a set of practical instructional strategies and tasks, many of them were able to make greater sense of fractions as numbers and make important connections to their whole number understandings, offering a whole new lens through which to facilitate learning about fractions with their students back in the classroom.

Graham presents a mix of practical games and activities to implement in the classroom tomorrow, together with big picture perspectives that inspire you to reflect and refine your practice. He humbly models the skills of an effective facilitator by meeting you where you are, taking you to the next step and encouraging you to continue the learning.
Talia Cossin, 4th Grade Dual Immersion Teacher in Framingham, MA
For years I have been immersed in mathematics education; learning and facilitating on what effective instruction looks like in the mathematics classroom. After each professional learning experience facilitated by Graham Fletcher, my thinking is challenged and I am inspired to grow in my teaching practice. Through his facilitation of engaging in tasks that promote problem solving and reasoning I have deepened my understanding of the progressions of mathematics. Thank you gfletchy!
