There are many fraction manipulatives, but this one is a bit different. Included in this set is one 5cm cube with a 4cm hollow (picture an open box with no flaps). There is a 3.5cm cube that fits nicely in the hollow to represent one whole. There are also two yellow half blocks, four orange rectangular blocks, and eight red (1 3/4cm) blocks that fit into the hollow to represent the different measures. The idea of proportional relationships (two yellow halves = one whole, etc.) and comparing fractions can be fun. Use these with your math curriculum or as an introduction for little ones - manipulatives are a nice addition
These colorful Fraction Cubes starter set will help children explore and compare fractions. Children will learn about the proportional relationships between one section and the whole as well as develop the mathematics flexible thinking.
