     A Fraction Overlay Kit is utilized in the Epsilon course to teach fractions. This set is color-coordinated with the Integer Block Set to aid students in learning fractions.

    This kit contains 39 total pieces that represent halves through sixteenths. There are 5 green, 2 orange, 3 pink, 4 yellow, 5 blue, and 6 purple colored vinyl pieces representing the numerator. Clear lined vinyl overlays portray the denominator, with two each of halves, thirds, fourths, fifths, sixths and tenths, and one each of eighths and sixteenths.

    This 61-pc set allows children to work tactilely with fractions by applying them to circles. Plastic pieces include an avocado green whole, blue halves, green thirds, peach fourths, magenta fifths, orange sixths, pink eighths, highlighter green tenths, and purple twelfths. A transparent cylindrical box with lid holds the whole set. Show equivalents by placing the whole piece in the bottom and see what combinations of other fractions will fill the circle. You could also enhance the pieces by adding magnets to the back. ~ Ruth

       There are many fraction manipulatives, but this one is a bit different. Included in this set is one 5cm cube with a 4cm hollow (picture an open box with no flaps). There is a 3.5cm cube that fits nicely in the hollow to represent one whole. There are also two yellow half blocks, four orange rectangular blocks, and eight red (1 3/4cm) blocks that fit into the hollow to represent the different measures. The idea of proportional relationships (two yellow halves = one whole, etc.) and comparing fractions can be fun. Use these with your math curriculum or as an introduction for little ones – manipulatives are a nice addition

       Understanding fractions is often one of the toughest concepts for children to conquer. Sure, they pick up halves, quarters and wholes easily, but transferring that understanding to numbers larger than 1 often presents a challenge. This vital set builds upon children’s basic understanding and teaches them how to work out the fractional part of any given quantity. For example, find 3/4 of 20 or 4/6 of 30. Best of all, it does not ‘tell them’ how to solve the fractional equation, rather it shows them how and gives them opportunities to master the concept through hands on activities! Set includes color coded foam shapes to make 5 polygons: circle, rectangle, square, pentagon and hexagon. Five foam dice are color coded to match polygons; 20 fraction cards (1/2 -6/6) and 36 plastic pegs are included. The enclosed instruction pamphlet provides 3 levels of guidance. In stage 1, Understanding Basic Fractions, children use cards and polygons to solidify basic understanding. In Stage 2, Fractions of Quantities, children use fraction cards, die and polygon to solve equations involving fractional quantities. Stage 3 summarizes Support and Reinforcement. Excellent resource to help children “see’ and master fractional quantities. Cardboard box for storage included. ~ Deanne

       This unique flip book offers a visual way to teach fractions to your student. 18 pages of write-on/wipe-off number lines can be used to help your student understand. Represented on the number lines are thirds, quarters, fifths, eighths, tenths, twelfths, sixteenths, percents, and decimals. Open the book horizontally (pages are 4” high and 12” wide), the top page is a blank number line with just marks for the correct placement, and the bottom page is a number line with fractions printed in the correct location. For example, thirds have a blank number line with four markings, the number line that is marked shows 0, 1/3, 2/3, and 1. The write-on/wipe-off page allows the student to practice writing the correct placement for fractions. There are no blank number lines for decimals and percents; students can see the correlation between the two because they are side-by-side. There are three blank number lines at the back of the flip book, no markings of any kind, so that students can practice writing fractions.

      Learning fractions, decimals and percentages and seeing the connections between them can be challenging. They were for me! Manipulatives such as these can be just the aid needed to help students grasp the concepts. This set includes three tile sets: fractions, decimals, and percentages. The tiles correlate in shape and color. So, to build a tile that represents the large “1” blue tile (6” long), your student can use twelve 1/12 pink tiles, six 0.166 orange tiles, or eight 12.5% tiles. You can also show correlation with colors: the yellow tiles are 2.5%, ¼, and 0.25. So helpful to bridge between the three equivalents! I would personally add magnets to the tile backs for further usability. Colors, from largest to smallest, are blue, brown, black, yellow, green, orange, red, purple and pink. Nine different fractions (and their equivalents) included: 1, ½, 1/3, ¼, 1/5, 1/6 1/8, 1/10, and 1/12. Tiles are 1” tall and range from 6” long for the “1” (or whole) tile to 1/2” long for the 1/12 tile. Comes in a transparent, plastic storage case with attached lid (bottom is 6 ¼” x 4 ¼”; top of case is 6 ½ x 4 ½). ~ Ruth

    Measuring approximately 6"x 1", these colorful plastic tiles are the perfect tool to review and solidify fraction concepts. Tiles include 1, ½, 1/3, 1/4, 1/5, 1/6, 1/8, 1/10, and 1/12. With the differing, vibrant colors, children will be able to easily see that 1/3 is equivalent to 2/6 and 4/12 or determine which is larger, 1/8 or 1/5! A perfect way to teach the abstract concepts with concrete, hands on resources to introduce fractions, equivalencies and the more complex concepts like addition and subtraction of fractions. ~ Deanne
