Synopsis

Fraction Jugglers by Ruth Bell Alexander

In FRACTION JUGGLERS Ruth Alexander helps kids grasp fractions and their real-world applications - while having such a great time, they don't even realise they're learning. Combining a full-colour, illustrated book of 19 games and a custom-designed deck of 86 cards, FRACTION JUGGLERS steadily and thoroughly builds up a student's understanding of how to apply and manipulate fractions. In the What's Bigger? Game, the smallest denominator wins. In the Renaming Game, players find ways to match target fractions. Reciprocals come into play in the Great Divide. And there's the Family Matters Game, the Mix and Match Game and lots more. Just like Number Jugglers, FRACTION JUGGLERS can be tailored to fit all ability levels, from fraction neophytes on. Adaptable and open-ended, the games encourage kids to both think and problem-solve creatively - and have a blast too!
