Products aligned with Fractions

Fractions I, the first book in the Making Math Real Fractions Books series, presents the essential foundational structures that directly support all future fractions applications across the grades, which include the concept-applications of fraction magnitude, sequencing, generating equivalent fractions, simplifying equivalent fractions to lowest terms and the basis for the successful integration of the four operations with fractions. Fractions I has two sections, the first presents the four concepts of fractions: 1) Parts of a Whole  2) Parts of a Group  3) Parts of a Segment  4) Parts of a Cup; and the second section presents the comprehensive sequence and increments for transforming lowest terms fractions to equivalent fractions and simplifying equivalent fractions to lowest terms.

Fractions I provides:

  • Concept-applications for developing fraction number sense
  • Perceptual bases for the comprehension of numerator/denominator relationships of 3-dimensional, 2-dimensional, and 1-dimensional fraction models
  • Conceptual and mathematical bases for classifying fractions as equivalents or lowest terms
  • Essential foundational preparation for addition and subtraction with like and unlike denominators
  • Essential foundational preparation for cross-simplifying fractions in multiplication and division
  • 119 pages of  comprehensive leveled practice
  • Extensive mixed practice throughout
  • Teacher answer key for every page
  • Ideal for classroom or private practice

Fractions I for guided application is exclusively available to course participants who have completed Making Math Real: Fractions, Decimals & Advanced Place Value.

∞ ORDER


Fractions IIA is the second book in the Making Math Real Fractions Books series, and is the first part of presenting the guided applications of the 4 operations with proper and mixed fractions. Fractions IIA continues the concept-applications presented in Fractions I that specifically support addition and subtraction of proper and mixed fractions with like and unlike denominators: students’ applications of generating equivalent fractions with least common denominators. In support of the challenging applications of addition and subtraction with proper and mixed fractions with unlike denominators, Fractions IIA provides structured practice for the successful integration of all four phases of concrete to abstract.

Fractions IIA provides:

  • Guided concrete to abstract practice for singular structure for generating equivalent fractions with like denominators across all three denominator relationships
  • Levels I – IV of renaming in addition and subtraction for mixed and proper fractions with like and unlike denominators
  • Concrete to abstract practice for transforming mixed fractions to improper fractions and improper fractions to mixed fractions

∞ ORDER


Fractions IIB is the third book in the Making Math Real Fractions Books series, and is the second part of presenting the guided applications of the 4 operations with proper and mixed fractions. Fractions IIA, the first part of the 4 operations with fractions presented addition and subtraction with proper and mixed fractions; and Fractions IIB completes the progression of the guided applications of the 4 operations with multiplication and division of proper and mixed fractions. A major focus of Fractions IIB is the concept-application of cross-simplify, a powerful algebraic math tool that is invaluable throughout higher mathematics as well as in the mathematical applications within chemistry and physics. In addition, Fractions IIB provides comprehensive mixed practice synthesizing all 4 operations of proper and mixed fractions.

Fractions IIB provides:

  • Complete practice applications for developing cross-simplifying and extra simplifying of proper and mixed fractions
  • Extensive section for synthesizing the 4 operations with proper and mixed fractions

Celebrating 25 Years!  NEW Product in the Series:  Making Math Real is pleased to announce the publication of Fractions III: Comparing and Ordering Fractions, which continues the Making Math Real Fractions Books Series including Fractions I, Fractions IIA, and Fractions IIB. This new book is the culmination of many years in the making. It provides comprehensive coverage and systematic incrementation for both mental and mathematical applications for developing the essential fraction number sense for understanding and applying fraction magnitude, and is divided into two sections: SECTION 1: The Four Styles of Comparing, Ordering, and Rounding Fractions Mentally, and SECTION 2: The Eight Levels of Comparing and Ordering Fractions Mathematically. These two sections provide:

  • Most efficient structures, mental and mathematical, for all categories of fraction comparison
  • Complete concept-applications for developing fraction number sense*
  • Developing numerator/denominator relationships: the perceptual basis for understanding, applying, and classifying fraction magnitude by respective categories
  • Excellent preparation for algebra readiness
  • Highest order development and applications of mental flexibility and detail analysis

In addition, Fractions III: Comparing and Ordering Fractions includes:

  • 181 pages of the specific incremental and systematic sequences for developing mental and mathematical applications for comparing, ordering and rounding fractions
  • Comprehensive leveled practice
  • Extensive mixed practice throughout
  • Teacher answer key for every page
  • Ideal for classroom and/or private practice

* Fraction-related applications present one of the largest domains in the K-12 development of mathematics, as fractions are included within the scope and sequences of every grade spanning kindergarten through calculus; and according to research, fractions and their applications, especially the comprehension and applications of fraction magnitude, have remained at an 80% failure rate nationwide for decadesª.

ª Hard Lessons: Why Rational Number Arithmetic Is So Difficult for So Many People Robert S. Siegler and Hugues Lortie-Forgues, Current Directions in Psychological Science, 2017, Vol. 26(4) 346–351.
