Description

The metal fraction circles introduce the concepts of fractions, and equivalents.  These concrete templates present ten different puzzles, decreasing from a complete circle, to one that is divided into ten portions, or decreasing fractions.  The fractions activity set A, is a set of questions that increase in complexity.  The Child gains a greater understanding of fractions by working through these cards.

Initially, the Child is introduced to this activity, by matching the beautiful red templates, to the patterns on the question cards.  As the activities develop in complexity, the Child begins to complete simple equations, matching the image of a concrete representation of a fraction, to the abstract written fraction on an alternate card.
