This powerful kit makes the study of fractions clear and simple and can be used to teach all operations as well as equivalence and reduction of fractions.
The kit contains clear and colored fraction tiles, following the color scheme used in all the Mortensen Math manipulatives, plus a handy organizing tray.
The tray is designed to hold the fraction tiles and their overlays in order from the one green unit in the top left corner to the 9/9 unit in the lower right. The fraction strips fit conveniently in the slot behind the corresponding unit tiles. The arrangement of the fraction tiles allows for easy access which makes it easy to teach and work from the tray as it keeps all the pieces organized and within reach.
