Fractions Review - for Adults Only

Scheduled for: TBD

Most workshops run during the summer months, but if there is enough interest in a workshop I will also run them during the school year. Click below and let me know you are interested!

Fractions may have been a frustrating process to you, as a child learner. However, as an adult learner, you may be surprised to find you already have many foundational pieces to using, learning, and fully understanding fractions. Most adults are pleasantly surprised to find they understand much more than they realized. Small misunderstanding often discourage us from continuing to learn. Don't let these mysterious numbers frighten you any more. Come learn with other adults, explore and ask your questions in a safe learning environment.
