“We are all functioning at a small fraction of our capacity” Winston Churchill
Students learn about fractions using materials such as the fraction circles, and the fraction skittles. They benefit greatly from the concrete, consistent, and gradual nature of the Montessori approach. Instead of simply using drawings representing fractional parts, Montessori students feel (as well as see) fractions like 1/10, 2/5, and ¾. Using these inviting materials they discover concepts such as equivalent fractions.
