Erin Mahollitz’s active and visual lesson is sure to give learners a real understanding of fractions and an understanding of the relationship between fractions.

Ideas on how to make this memorable lesson less complex or more complex? Are there other visuals your students could make to better understand relationships, numbers, or concepts?

    Here is a Math website that explains a paper folding fraction activity with a twist and several fraction games. Candy bars add to the motivation! http://www.learn-with-math-games.com/fraction-paper-games.html
