Math Mammoth Fractions 1 covers the concepts of fraction and mixed numbers, equivalent fractions, adding and subtracting like and unlike fractions, adding and subtracting mixed numbers, and comparing fractions.
Studying fractions involves lots of rules, and many students learn them only mechanically, not really understanding the underlying concepts and principles. Then they end up making lots of mistakes because they confuse the different rules.
To avoid that, this book uses the visual model of a pie divided into slices all the way through the book. When students work with this model from lesson to lesson, they will eventually be able to "see" these pies in their mind. This, in turn, gives them the ability to do many of the easier fraction calculations mentally. It also enables students to really UNDERSTAND these concepts.
Answers are in the end of the book.
