Sometimes, the teaching of fractions isn’t easy!
Some children just DON’T get it!
What many of them need is to learn virtually by rote learning. Yes, I hear what you say! Rote learning went out with the ark, you say! Well, maybe it shouldn’t have!
Because SOME children — and I mean just SOME — need heaps of revision in each level of fraction manipulation — addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and fractions as operators.
And if they don’t get enough practice, then they don’t reach any sort of mastery of this important topic.
Enter our solution.
We are about to release our “Single Skill Fraction Worksheets” for students struggling with this topic at the upper primary level.
These sheets are EXACTLY what they say they are. For example, in addition of fractions, one of these worksheets contains EXACTLY 80 fraction problems, each of which is a subtraction of fractions with same denominators. The student doesn’t need to do all 80 of these fraction sums — only enough to feel confident in his/her understanding of the process. Then, and only then, should they go on to the next sheet, which will introduce them to addition of fractions with different (but quite simple!) denominators. And this worksheet is typical of the rest of the worksheets in the pack. Each worksheet contains just one particular skill being taught, 80 times over. Sufficient practice for almost any student!
A teaching process that follows that old guideline for teachers: “Move from the known to the unknown”!
Nothing new here, just a solid teaching process that leads to mastery of fractions.
Our Fraction Single-Skill Pack is going to be released in August.
But if you’d like a couple of samples RIGHT NOW, free of cost, simply email your request to info@EdShop.net.au and we’ll get them off to you straight away.
Why struggle with the teaching of fractions, when a great resource like this is will be readily available?
