Description: In the era of computers and calculators, why is it important for students to learn fractions? A student must understand fractions in order to learn algebra and geometry. In addition to recognizing the parts of a fraction, young learners need to understand the meaning of each part and its relationship to the whole. Because many young learners have difficulty developing the concept of fractions, using pictures of shapes and groups of objects to represent fractions enables young learners to understand their meaning. Then, students can make the transition from the pictorial representation of fractions to abstract mathematical notation. This understanding allows them to move on to more advanced mathematics. Fractions: The Whole Story helps introduce and reinforce these basic fraction concepts.
