addition, subtraction, division, multiplication of fractions and fractions with manipulative

Intro to equivalent fractions

Sal introduces equivalent fractions with pizza.

Fraction Manipulatives

Watch a Math lesson on fractions using manipulatives. Students use fractions strips and circle graphs along with the build it, draw it, write it method to gain a better understanding of fractions. Great lesson to get the students to lead their own learning.

Renaming Fractions

The following section reviews the processes of renaming and simplifying fractions. These processes are invaluable when you add, subtract, multiply, or divide.

Love that they use the term "rename" fractions and not "reduce". Often when we use the word reduce fractions kids can get confused. However I dislike the way they use cross product and simplifying fractions. There are equally simple models that would make the transition to algebra easier.

Fraction Number Line

Math explained in easy language, plus puzzles, games, quizzes, worksheets and a forum. For K-12 kids, teachers and parents.

Its a great resource to show students you don't "reduce" the fraction, you are simply renaming it. Also great to compare what fractions are larger. bigger digits doesn't imply bigger fractions i.e. 2/3 vs 6/10

1. Fractions as division (C)

helps students understand that 5 divided by 6 is 5/6. This example is given by 6 dogs equally sharing 5 treats. Great visual demonstration.

Great list! I never thought of using dominoes during my fraction work! I can think of some fun and quick ways to use them as random fraction generators for a variety of games. Thanks! TaraThe Math Maniac
