This Math Mat is designed to be a tool for students to visually explore fractions. Mats can be laminated or sandwiched between contact paper to be used with dry erase pens. Each "whole" shape has light grey lines for students to easily trace to create their desired parts. Students can work with fractions from 1/2 to 1/32.

When students use the mats, it is easy for them to keep track of their thinking and show the teacher their process to arrive at a solution.

Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions referring to the same whole and having like denominators, e.g., by using visual fraction models and equations to represent the problem.
Add and subtract mixed numbers with like denominators, e.g., by replacing each mixed number with an equivalent fraction, and/or by using properties of operations and the relationship between addition and subtraction.
Decompose a fraction into a sum of fractions with the same denominator in more than one way, recording each decomposition by an equation. Justify decompositions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model. Examples: 3/8 = 1/8 + 1/8 + 1/8; 3/8 = 1/8 + 2/8; 2 1/8 = 1 + 1 + 1/8 = 8/8 + 8/8 + 1/8.
Understand addition and subtraction of fractions as joining and separating parts referring to the same whole.
Understand a fraction π’/π£ with π’ > 1 as a sum of fractions 1/π£.
