Do you have pattern blocks? Traditionally, we know the triangles as sixths, rhombi as thirds and trapezoids as halves. But what if we changed this a bit? Suppose the trapezoid was not 1/2, but 1/4? What would that make the green triangles? What would "1" look like?

If you want to deepen your students' understanding of fractions using manipulatives and having children work together on a very engaging and challenging set of tasks, then you'll want to buy this. This unit, complete with lesson plans and answer keys, is definitely nothing like you've seen before: it challenges children to look at fractional "pieces" and figure out what the whole and parts would look like.
