Abstract
The study reported in this paper investigates students' representations of fractions in a regular elementary school mathematics classroom where students' construction of mathematical knowledge is emphasized in the process of teaching and learning mathematics based on a constructive approach. This paper focuses on an analysis of students' representations of fractions as they work on the fraction comparison tasks and justify their solutions in a collective classroom activity. The importance of setting a problematic situation and encouraging students to make various representations for their meaningful learning mathematics is exemplified. Some implications for teacher's activity and school mathematics curriculum are also suggested.
