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

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, and also includes answer keys.

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