## How to teach comparing fractions? | Math Teaching Learning Aid

Use circular fraction discs to:

• Understand representation of fractions
• Understand how the value of a fraction becomes smaller as the denominator increases
• Compare like & unlike fractions

Divide and Rule

A conflation of just the right dosage of 1/4ths of healthy information, 1/4ths implementation, 1/4ths knowledge and 1/4ths self-application leads to a winsome and beneficial relationship between a student and a long-lasting education. Yet how does one divide those doses just as required without a knowledge of fractions – and how better to learn it than with a solid supply of experiential learning, practical implementation and interactive lessons? Butterfly Fields exemplifies these features with our Do-It-Yourself Fractions kit for all 4th graders!

Consisting of an exciting and colorful apparatus to make your child’s Math lessons just as enjoyable as they are academic, this kit consists of the activities that use provided ‘circular fraction discs’ that will help your child with the following:

• Understand the representation of fractions
• Understand how the value of a fraction becomes smaller as the denominator increases
• Compare like & unlike fractions

With this full-circle (pun intended) lesson about Comparing and Adding like Fractions, your child will learn fundamental features that comprise STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Management) skills, they will feel a sense of accomplishment and fulfillment, an ease of understanding, a simplification of the relatively intricate topic of fractions, and enjoy their classes far more due to the out-of-box thinking and higher-order thinking this DIY project will instill in them!
