Understanding fractions proceeds best in a balance of three stages: using manipulatives for concrete representations; using pictorials as semiconcrete representations; and finally, using numbers to represent abstract relationships involving procedures and operations. This 3-book set covers all three stages.

The Straight Forward Math Series is systamatic: first diagnosing skill levels, then practice, periodic review, and testing. Progression through fractions practice is thorough and complete.

This 3-book set includes Fractions (Grades 2-3), Advanced Fractions (Grades 3-5), and Fractions Mastery (Grades 5-8). Each 40- to 64-page book includes an answer key.
