From the site: "Why Fractions? Fractions are one of the earliest stumbling blocks for students in math. Our goal is building conceptual understanding in fractions as a basis for comprehension in all later topics."Instructional Strategies Online

Instructional strategies determine the approach a teacher may take to achieve learning objectives.

Five categories of instructional strategies and explanation of these five categories can be found within this site.No Pain, High Gain | Scholastic.com

Great article on looking at test preparation differently. It's not about answering a lot of questions similar to the ones on the test, but about learning processes that help students understand how to garner information from text/problems, etc.
