Funny & Fabulous Fraction Stories
Stories, poems, plays and parodies all with the goal of making something difficult into something enjoyable and understandable. Great for a summer review or as a supplement to your math curriculum, this works as an introduction to fractions or as more practice. There are 4 sections: the basics (visualizing fractions to expressing them in simplest form), adding/subtracting, multiplying/dividing and using fractions (apply what they have learned to calculate probability, ratios & decimals). An exam after the first two and last two sections assesses the students learning. Annotated solutions are provided. Activities have fun names like: Martha Crunch, Personal Fractions Trainer and Joe Trella and Fraction Fella. Pages are black and white with silly illustrations. Reproducible. ~Sara
