A strong understanding of the fractions content and their students' understanding of fractions allowed the teams to make more informed decisions during each lesson. They reported increased confidence in interpreting student responses, especially partially correct ones, and used probing questions to support student learning (rather than evaluative or leading ones). Through the use of probing questions, flexible groupings, and carefully selected tasks, teachers were able to provide opportunities for students to build a solid understanding of fractions.
