From sales and sandwiches, to car rides and sports, fractions are used everyday. This Parent Toolkit video explains a few ways to help turn kids’ fraction fears into fraction fun.

Fractions

KATE SNOW, reporting:

Fractions. Lots of kids hate them, but with a few spare minutes every day, you can help your kids master fractions, and have some fun too. Use food! Cut up a sandwich into thirds, quarters or even eights. Show how each section makes up an equal part of the whole sandwich. Track your child's height. See if they can figure out how much they've grown in the past year down to the nearest 1/8th of an inch. Show how we divide sporting events into quarters and halves? We even use fractions to figure out how much farther we need to drive. See if your child can find other examples. By highlighting math every day, you can help your kids conquer their fraction fears.
