Turtles have been enjoying working with the fractions materials this term.  Knowing how to understand and use fractions is important in mathematics and everyday life.

Students using materials such as the Fraction insets and Fraction Circle Boxes, benefit greatly from the concrete, consistent, and gradual nature of the Montessori approach. Instead of simply using drawings representing fractional parts, Montessori students are able to feel (as well as see) fractions like 1/10, 2/5, and 3/4 and can use these materials to discover for themselves concepts such as equivalence and adding fractions.
