PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This set of interactive fraction manipulatives for the SMART Board contains circles, rods, squares, and rectangles all divided into halves, thirds, fourths, fifths, sixths, eighths, tenths, and twelfths, as well as a whole for each shape. What makes these manipulatives special is that they were created with Smart Notebook, so they have some unique features:

• They can be ungrouped so you can manipulate individual unit fractions.

• Once ungrouped, you can change the color of some sections, and then group the shape again to create different fraction identification tasks for your students.

• You can change the transparency level so that when you lay one fraction over another, you can see equivalent fractions.

• When the shapes are small, you do not see the unit fraction labels. However, when you enlarge them, the fraction name appears.

You will receive a total of 36 different shapes along with directions for how to customize the shapes. At the end of the file are pages where the shapes have been infinitely cloned, so you truly have an endless supply of fractions. You can make them as large or small as you wish. You can also copy and paste the shapes into other Notebook files. If you add the infinitely cloned pages of this file to the “My Content” section of the Gallery, you can easily access them whenever you have Smart Notebook open.

Please note that, while the preview is a Smart Notebook file, the pages are only screenshots, so the fractions are not interactive. The exception is page 12 of the preview which contains a fraction circle divided into 6ths. You can experiment with cloning, enlarging, shrinking, ungrouping, changing color or transparency level, etc.

If you enjoy this file, I would love to hear feedback! Also, visit my TPT store to see my other SMART Board products and follow me to hear about updates.

Thanks for checking out my product. Please let me know if you have any questions!

Great resource! Thank you for providing the directions to edit colors. I love that I can change it to match the manipulatives my students use. I also have ungrouped the pieces to make it easy to pull out just one section in a lesson. Leaving them as infinite clones allows many different options. Thanks again!

Hi,
I just purchased this for a lesson on equivalent fractions. After I downloaded it, the fraction circle pages just show large triangles and not the circles. Any ideas as to why it's doing this?
Thanks,
Heather
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  January 22, 2013Downeast Teach answered:
Hi Heather,
First, thanks for purchasing my product! I'm sorry it is not working properly. I'm not sure why you are not seeing the circles. What exactly are you seeing on that page? Are the triangles arranged in a circle? Are they grouped? Colored? Labeled?
I'm also wondering which version of Smart Notebook you are using. I know this file works with both Notebook 10 and 11. I'm not sure about earlier versions. If you have an older version, try updating it. If your software is current, maybe you could try downloading the file again. I just did that to check it and the circle fractions look fine on my computer.

Please let me know if either of these suggestions work.
Thanks,
Cathy

Hi -
I can't open the manipulatives that I just purchased. It says that there is something wrong with the content. Is there another way that I can get the information since I paid for it?

Thank you,
Cheryl
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  September 23, 2012Downeast Teach answered:
Hi Cheryl,
I am so sorry you are having trouble opening the file. I have two questions for you. The first is, do you have the most up-to-date version of Smart Notebook installed, which is version 11? If not, that could be the problem. And second, were you able to view and manipulate the interactive shape in the preview file? Please let me know about these 2 questions and we'll go from there.

Thanks,
Cathy
