Simple Fractions. Math in Action. Workbook.
Lock, Rose; And Others
This workbook is designed as an easy-to-read, slower-paced mathematics text for students who have learning, reading, and language problems. Helping students fulfill mathematics requirements for graduation is a goal; the book can be used as the core or supplement to the mathematics curriculum in mainstreamed or special education classrooms, in mathematics laboratories, or as part of sheltered workshop and vocational training programs. The eight units begin with a brief discussion of how fractions are used in real life. Each lesson focuses on only one major concept, and includes comprehension exercises with an answer key. Most lessons are reinforced with at least one worksheet, available in the teacher's guide. The units are titled: Fractions All Around You, Naming Fractions, Different Names for the Same Amount, Renaming Fractions, Comparing Fractions, Multiplying Fractions, Adding and Subtracting Fractions, and Dividing Fractions. A brief glossary is included. (MNS)
