Product Description
This is the student workbook for Teaching Fractions Using LEGO Bricks by Shirley Disseler and should be used in conjunction with that book.
In Learning Fractions Using LEGO® Bricks: Student Edition,
Dr. Shirley Disseler has developed activities that work to help
students learn the basics of fractions, using a common toy
available in most classrooms and homes—LEGO® bricks!
Many students struggle with learning fractions. Teachers struggle,
too, in finding ways to teach the concepts. LEGO® bricks help
students learn the mathematical concepts through modeling.
In this book, the hands-on activities using LEGO® bricks help
students learn how to:
• recognize fractions
• use the vocabulary of fractions
• define a whole and represent parts of different sized wholes
• add and subtract with like and unlike denominators
• represent and understand mixed numbers and find
equivalent fractions
The book starts with the most basic concepts and focuses on
a specific topic in each chapter. Most students learn these
concepts between grades 2 – 6.
Using LEGO® bricks to model math provides a universal
language. Children everywhere recognize this manipulative.
It’s fun to learn when you’re using LEGO® bricks!
