The 4th grade teachers at HEL would like to better facilitate understanding of challenging fraction concepts and computation skills using rainbow fraction tower link cubes that students can examine and manipulate. Representations of the equal parts that make up one whole—from halves to twelfths—would provide a connection between newly introduced fraction notation components and assembly models for third grade students, as well as more complex structures that represent simple to more challenging mathematical operations. Every child deserves the chance to use a successful method that helps them to understand in a hands-on engaging way. Learning the language and meaning of fractions is difficult. Exploration with a model that can be handled and managed makes the abstract concepts real. Teachers have long used paper models, but they are not sustainable, especially when cut into smaller fractions (pieces). They are easily lost or destroyed.
