Engage your students in practicing fraction representations from a whole. The manipulatives can be a teaching aid for teaching students varied forms of fractions.
This fraction circle activity was intended to be used as manipulatives to familiarize students with adding fractions with unlike denominators. Students can use the fraction circles to learn how to use fractions with unlike denominators to create a whole or more. It can also be used to introduce students to adding and subtracting fractions with common and unlike denominators, equivalent fractions, multiplication and division of fractions, and all operations using mixed numbers.
In addition to using these as manipulatives, the fraction circles can be printed for use as references that can be glued into a math notebook or used throughout the year.
