Fraction Tracks

This 17:29 minute video from the classic Annenberg Learner series illustrates the practice standard of communication about mathematics among a teacher and her students as they learn and play the "fraction tracks" game. The video also shows how activities like this allow students to use communication as a tool to deepen their understanding of mathematics. Three analysis questions are given at the end of the video to promote dialogue among teachers of mathematics.
