Product Description
This is Part 1 of "Understanding Fractions", a multi-part Scaffolded fractions curriculum.

"Understanding Fractions" is designed especially for kids who learn math best when it is presented in small increments, with plenty of practice on one concept before moving on to the next. Each concept is clearly explained, with many examples. This scaffolded approach helps kids develop solid math skills and confidence.

Part 1 includes a very basic introduction to fractions, comparing simple fractions, and addition and subtraction of simple fractions (with the same denominator). Includes worksheets, quizzes, and a test.

Part 1 requires knowledge of addition and subtraction but not multiplication or division, and so can be used with younger children.
