Fraction Toys, Aids, Activities



Aside from "word problems," nothing mathematical perplexes and dismays students more than fractions.

Most of this unfortunate and unnecessary dread stems from a lack of "fraction sense," an insufficient familiarity with fractions, what they are, and how they work.

There are numerous ways to help students acquire fraction sense. Following are several of my favorites:

Rainbow Fraction Squares

Rectangular Fraction Decimal Tiles

Transparent Fraction Circle Rings, Opaque Fraction Circle Rings
