Comments about Fraction Pie Puzzles:
The fraction pie pieces are an excellent manipulative for equivalent fractions. I teach Special Education and my students are enthuastic to "play" with it, because they see it as a game. They enjoy having the option of becoming the "puzzle master". It also has different stages (easy, intermediate, hard) which makes it great for differentiation. It would be even better if it could extend to be used for adding and subtracting fractions. Other than that, it has been a great addition to my Learning Center.
WAS THIS A GIFT?:No
BOTTOM LINE Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
3.G.2. Partition shapes into parts with equal areas. Express the area of each part as a unit fraction of the whole.
4.NF.1. Explain why a fraction a/b is equivalent to a fraction (n × a)/(n × b) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size.
4.NF.2. Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2.
5.NF.1. Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators (including mixed numbers) by replacing given fractions with equivalent fractions in such a way as to produce an equivalent sum or difference of fractions with like denominators.
5.NF.2. Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions referring to the same whole, including cases of unlike denominators, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem.
Learning Resources manufactures a wide range of award-winning toys and learning aids for children from two to twelve years. Most of our customers are teachers (or other educational practitioners) but many are also parents, grandparents, aunts & uncles; in fact anyone who wants to make a positive difference to a child's growth and development. Our company started in King's Lynn in Norfolk in 1994 in response to demand from European customers for the products made by our parent company Learning Resources Inc. of Vernon Hills, Illinois. For more than thirty years our American colleagues have been developing quality educational products that make learning exciting for children of all abilities. Together we create hands-on products that build a concrete foundation of skills through exploration, imagination and fun.
Of course all of our products conform to all European safety standards so during the years Learning Resources has become The Brand Teachers Trust supplying teachers with educational products for early years education, maths and literacy learning, phonics (letters & sounds), reading, science, personal, social & health education (PSHE), and English as an Additional Language (EAL).
Situated in the historic town of King's Lynn in the fine county of Norfolk, Learning Resources is a pleasant train journey from London, an hour's drive from Peterborough, Cambridge or Norwich and a stone's throw from the Queen's winter residence at Sandringham. She seldom visits us (OK, has never visited us) but you are welcome, just let us know you're coming!
Learning Resources is the proud distributor of Educational Insights and Green Toys ranges.
