Foundations of Fractions

As teachers, many of us are being asked to teach fractions WAY different than we learned it ourselves. This can make it really difficult to meet the needs of all your students.

My 6-week, asynchronous workshop will support you in building a conceptual understanding of fractions in our classrooms.

Fall 2022

Registration for my next six-week Foundations of Numerical Reasoning online workshop opens on September 23, 2022, at 8 am Pacific Time. This $297 workshop begins on October 10, 2022, and ends on November 19, 2022. You have access to the workshop content for an additional ten weeks until January 28, 2023.

Please send me a reminder!

Foundations of Fractions

There's a lot of conceptual understanding that needs to takes place in our classrooms when it comes to fractions, and at times, it can be hard to make sense of it all.

There has to be a better way...and there is!

What is a balanced approach to math instruction?

A balanced approach to building an understanding of fractions - Each module is specifically designed to ensure that you and your students are engaging in the three aspects of rigor with equal intensity.

Launch the Concept

Application - Learn how to facilitate a 3-act task and problem-based lessons to launch the concept for an upcoming unit. We'll leverage these tasks as formative and diagnostic assessments to uncover student thinking.

Connecting and Extending our Thinking

Conceptual Understanding - Through the use of manipulatives, tools, and models, we'll unpack the progression of learning to meet the needs of your students.

Building Fluency

Procedural Fluency - Build fluency the right way with purposeful practice. We'll engage in strategy-based games that keep students engaged in a fun and meaningful way.

What are the modules?

There are six modules that walk you through the progression of fractions. Each module focuses on a balanced approach like above.

Module 1: Meaning of Fraction

Module 2: Equivalence and Comparison of Fractions

Module 3: Addition and Subtraction of Fractions

Module 4: Multiplication of Fractions

Module 5: Division of Fractions

Module 6: Ratio and Proportions

Hi, I’m Graham. Over the last 20 years, I've had the amazing opportunity to serve as a classroom teacher, a math instructional coach, and a district coordinator.

Having worked with teachers and students across the globe I've really been able to see the importance of understanding the progression of learning. This has allowed me to be much more intentional and purposeful as a teacher, allowing me to meet students where they are on their math journey.

My Foundations of Number Reasoning Workshop is designed to empower you to do the same. All of us are smarter than one of us and I want to support you AND your students.

My promise to you...

Building Capacity

Build and extend your own numerical reasoning through the lens of conceptual understanding.


Identify how to find a healthy balance between conceptual understanding, application, and procedural fluency.

Formative Assessment

Analyze student thinking and reasoning to determine your next steps as the teacher.

Build Understanding through Coherence

Empower your students by intentionally connecting lessons and ideas to uncover the next "ah-ha" moment.


Learn how to connect multiple concepts which frees up more of your time.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

You can find the workshop's start and end times listed at the top of this page under the video. If for any reason you need more time, just email me at and we can talk about an extension.

There are six modules in total. Each module contains a video that's about an hour but we hit pause along the way to tackle some tasks, work through some activities, and play some games. You can expect to spend approximately 2 hours on each module. All of the models are completed asynchronously, which means that you get to learn at your own pace.

The workshop costs $297. You have the option of paying by purchase order or credit card.

If you need professional development for your teaching credential license certificate my workshop might be able to help you out. Just go to Grassroots Workshops and check out the information where you live. After you have completed the workshop you will receive a certificate of participation.

We sure do. Check out this link to learn more.

If you complete my workshop and do not learn anything you can use with your students, email me at within 10 business days of the workshop ending and I will give you a full refund.

You don't need to teach and learn math alone.

I want to walk alongside you and give you the tools you need to move your students through a progression of numerical reasoning.
