This math workbook from the Dr. Pi Squared Math Workbooks focuses on basic fraction skills. The first two chapters introduce the concept of representing a fraction with pie slices. The remaining ten chapters offer practice converting between mixed numbers and improper fractions, reducing fractions and mixed numbers, finding the lowest common denominator, comparing fractions and mixed numbers, finding reciprocals of fractions and mixed numbers, and adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing fractions and mixed numbers. Each section begins with a description of how to perform the mathematical procedure, including fully-solved examples to illustrate the technique and to serve as a useful guide. Answers are nicely organized by page number in the back of the book to allow students, parents, or teachers to quickly check the answers. There is ample workspace for students to write large answers and still fit their solutions comfortably into the space provided. High-quality, durable, bright paper is used (instead of standard workbook paper, which often tears easily and appears dull in color). CONTENTS: (1) Determining Fractions Visually, (2) Representing Fractions Visually (students color the pie slices), (3) Converting Mixed Numbers into Improper Fractions, (4) Converting Improper Fractions into Mixed Numbers, (5) Reducing Fractions and Mixed Numbers, (6) Finding Lowest Common Denominators, (7) Comparing Fractions (includes fractions vs. fractions, integers vs. fractions, and mixed numbers vs. fractions), (8) Adding Fractions (includes fractions plus fractions, fractions plus integers, and mixed numbers plus mixed numbers), (9) Subtracting Fractions (includes fractions minus fractions, subtracting fractions with integers, and mixed number minus mixed numbers), (10) Multiplying Fractions (includes fractions times fractions, fractions times integers, and mixed numbers times mixed numbers), (11) Reciprocating Fractions, Integers, and Mixed Numbers, (12) Dividing Fractions, Answers (includes fractions divided by fractions, dividing fractions with integers, and mixed numbers divided by mixed numbers).

"With the collaboration of a number of dedicated teachers and their students, Susan Empson and Linda Levi have produced a volume that is faithful to the basic principles of CGI while at the same time covering new ground with insight and innovation." -Thomas P. Carpenter This highly anticipated follow-up volume to the landmark Children's Mathematics: Cognitively Guided Instruction addresses the urgent need to help teachers understand and teach fraction concepts. Fractions remain one of the key stumbling blocks in math education, and here Empson and Levi lay a foundation for understanding fractions and decimals in ways that build conceptual learning. They show how the same kinds of intuitive knowledge and sense making that provides the basis for children's learning of whole number arithmetic can be extended to fractions and decimals. Just as they did in Children's Mathematics and Thinking Mathematically, Empson and Levi provide important insights into children's thinking and alternative approaches to solving problems. Three themes appear throughout the book: building meaning for fractions and decimals through discussing and solving word problems the progression of children's strategies for solving fraction word problems and equations from direct modeling through relational thinking designing instruction that capitalizes on students' relational thinking strategies to integrate algebra into teaching and learning fractions. With illuminating examples of student work, classroom vignettes, "Teacher Commentaries" from the field, sample problems and instructional guides provided in each chapter, you'll have all the tools you need to teach fractions and decimals with understanding and confidence.

This practice book is designed to help students develop proficiency in their conversions between fractions, decimals, and percentages by offering ample practice. This book is conveniently divided up into five parts such that students can focus on one arithmetic operation at a time: • Converting from fractions to decimals and percents. • Converting from decimals to fractions and percents. • Converting from percents to fractions and decimals. • Converting fractions into repeating decimals and percents. • Converting repeating decimals into fractions and percents. The book begins with a concise explanation of the concepts with some examples to serve as a guide. Answers to exercises are tabulated at the back of the book. This helps students develop confidence and ensures that students practice correct techniques, rather than practice making mistakes. The copyright notice permits parents/teachers who purchase one copy or borrow one copy from a library to make photocopies for their own children/students only. This is very convenient if you have multiple children/students or if a child/student needs additional practice. An introduction describes how parents and teachers can help students make the most of this workbook. Kids are encouraged to time and score each page. In this way, they can try to have fun improving on their records, which can help lend them confidence in their math skills.
