Fraction of Quantities Set
Understanding fractions is often one of the toughest concepts for children to conquer. Sure, they pick up halves, quarters and wholes easily, but transferring that understanding to numbers larger than 1 often presents a challenge. This vital set builds upon children's basic understanding and teaches them how to work out the fractional part of any given quantity. For example, find 3/4 of 20 or 4/6 of 30. Best of all, it does not "tell them' how to solve the fractional equation, rather it shows them how and gives them opportunities to master the concept through hands on activities! Set includes color coded foam shapes to make 5 polygons: circle, rectangle, square, pentagon and hexagon. Five foam dice are color coded to match polygons; 20 fraction cards (1/2 -6/6) and 36 plastic pegs are included. The enclosed instruction pamphlet provides 3 levels of guidance. In stage 1, Understanding Basic Fractions, children use cards and polygons to solidify basic understanding. In Stage 2, Fractions of Quantities, children use fraction cards, die and polygon to solve equations involving fractional quantities. Stage 3 summarizes Support and Reinforcement. Excellent resource to help children "see' and master fractional quantities. Cardboard box for storage included. ~ Deanne
