Fractions: Activities and Exercises for Teaching Fractions in Secondary Schools. Series of Caribbean Volunteer Publications, No. 4.
Voluntary Services Overseas, Castries (St. Lucia).
This document contains materials from a half day workshop held at Petit Secondary School for mathematics teachers at Petit Bordel and Troumaca Ontario Secondary School on the island of St. Vincent in the Caribbean. This book advocates the use of activity-based mathematics as a teaching methodology in secondary schools and demonstrates the use of proprietary and 'home produced' resources. Objectives of this workshop included examining various means of teaching fractions to secondary students, particularly those at the lower school level and to give concrete realization to the abstract teaching approach found in most mathematics textbooks.
