The word fraction is enough to scare children and send a chill down their spines. Once, I asked a group of teachers that, which subject children find most hard to grasp? The answer was not much different from my own observation. Well, they replied Fractions and Telling time, so I thought my next two topics will be on Fraction and telling time for sure. My daughter also used to find fractions complex and challenging, but not anymore. I taught her fraction through daily life objects. I learnt from my experience is that if children start understanding, how we use them then it won’t be a tough topic for them anymore. I highly recommend using maths manipulative to teach fractions. You don’t have to buy them you can use Lego blocks, skittles or marbles instead.
