Fraction nation

  1. 1. Fraction Nation a collaborative action design
  2. 2. All students need at one point in their school life to confront fractions. If they havemanipulated lego bricks, helped to cook or to make things, they usually don’t have muchtrouble. Others however meet a wall, get frustrated and even give up on math. Ourobjective is to provide a tool to students that are struggling with fractions, or are justbeing introduced to fraction manipulation. We dream of a Moodle supported learningcentre that provides information, that invites each learner to practice new skills, andreal life projects needing in some cases team interaction. Our design includes a Moodlesetup with ordered links in a logical sequence. Parallel to the academic work made oflectures and practice exercises, there are suggested projects, and a discussion roomwhere students in different courses can converse.The target audience is the young adolescent but should be able to include both youngerand older children. Suggested team projects focus on young adolescent interests.The business model is non-profit and entirely volunteer based and will be improvedthrough interaction with the end users and teachers. Parents will be solicited toparticipate in the project through donations. Teachers will also be volunteering theirtime to monitor the discussion group, to encourage students, to check that progress ofstudents is regular, and to provide helpful tips when asked.
