Fraction Action allows students to see fractions other than unit fractions, enabling them to compare and order fractions, explore equivalence and perform mathematical operations on fractions using a practical, hands-on approach. Play the video above to see Fraction Action in action!
The resource helps children to see the relationships between different fractions. For example they can visually see 2/8 is the same as 1/4, and that added together they make 1/2, hence developing their skills with addition and subtraction of fractions – a key concept in the curriculum.
The pieces are handy sized with a magnetic back, so perfect for children to use individually or in small groups in the classroom. They’re extremely tactile, made from a durable foam, and the strong magnetic backing means the pieces won’t move about once sorted into place (children with motor-coordination difficulties especially appreciate this!).
Every written option for all whole number fractions up to 12/12 is included, making this a truly unique resource in a very crowded marketplace of fraction teaching tools.
