Fractions

As a classroom middle school teacher, I was of the belief that fractions are something that are taught in elementary school and then reviewed in middle school. So my focus was to teach conversions from fractions to decimals to percents, as shown in my interactive game. However, I have since learned that students have been mystified by fractions since the beginning of time! It will be interesting to see how my nephew learns these concepts in third grade.
