Fraction A Day - Day 11 - Classifying Fractions

This post was inspired by a paper simply titled Fractions  on the  NCETM - The National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematicssite.

In the paper they had a section titled "Classifying Fractions" and which had an image similar to these I created from my Etoys project:

Changes that I plan to make to this (or volunteers who want to join the team can make, hint, hint, nudge, nudge, wink, wink, you'll get free Etoys training!!!) include:

  • embedding visual fractions (which could be easily made with other tools from this project)
  • embedding pictures of fractions kids find in the "wild"
  • animated feedback options when they properly and improperly classify
One goal of this project is to make it easy, for teachers and kids, to create content.  So if you have a lesson idea you would like to create let us know we'd love to have you (plus your lessons might be used by kids around the world ;)
