Right-Brained Fractions

by Sarah K Major Author

(From Amazon): Is your child struggling with fractions? Fractions are hard for most children to learn and remember. Because an understanding of fractions is essential to algebra (and other higher level maths) and are important in day to day life, it is worthwhile to explore why fractions are hard, and then share some strategies that will help students learn and understand fractions. How Right-Brained Fractions addresses these difficulties: 1. Every term is defined in such a way that the very structure of each word is explored for its meaning. For example, “Numerator” is broken into two parts: Ator means “one who” and Numer means “enumerates or counts” which means that the numerator is one who counts. 2. Each term is also stylized in full color to show the meaning of the word. 3. Real life stories introduce students to the meaning behind the various steps in fractions which help students remember what to do and why they are doing it. (Thus avoiding the need for memorization of steps). 4. Every lesson has hands-on components before the student ever deals with symbols and puts pencil to paper to solve problems. 5. Models are used consistently so that the student can see what is happening rather than just listening to an explanation of what is happening. 6. Notes to the teacher as well as stories to read make teaching fractions simple for the teacher without having to engage in extensive training ahead of time. You can actually read through the book with your student(s). 7. All activities, worksheets, assessments and answer keys are included. The book is ready to pick up and use.
