Introduce the Child to the concept of fractions using the Metal Fraction Circles with Stands. This activity teaches:
- the correct terminology
- concept of equivalence
- arithmetic functions
- measurements of angles
- conversion to decimals.
You need a three-period lesson to complete the work. After the Child is comfortable with:
- the sensorial,
- naming convention and
- understanding the concept of equivalence.
The teacher begins the more complex next steps; arithmetic functions, angles and decimals.
- 2 solid Beech wood stands
- 10 metal green frames each with a circular red inset
- one inset is whole,
- all other insets have divisions of equal parts,
- each inset part has a knob
Children love working with these metal fraction circles. The fractions are didactically accurate and allow the child to trace the angles.
You’ve probably enjoyed any number of geometric drawings your child has brought home from his or her use of the Metal Insets. The Metal Insets offer children ten different inset puzzles….
