Discovering Fractions – Introduction

This free math video shows a great activity to do with two or more children once they understand a few basics about fractions (shown in the previous video). They will discover fraction rules on their own!

Children should do this activity many times with various rods used as “one” or the “whole.” This will help them internalize and generalize the concepts they are learning.

Cuisenaire Rods are a kinesthetic and visual way for children to play with numbers.
