The books, math games, and fraction manipulatives will help students learn and better understand fractions and place value. In addition, each of the books will help introduce and reinforce learning about fractions. Math lessons structured in a traditional discussion partnered with drill and practice to learn content leaves many students having negative attitudes towards math. “This rigid structure leads students to view math as a chore that needs to be completed, rather than a puzzle that needs to be figured out” (White & McCoy, 2019, p. 2). Using games and manipulatives as a part of mathematics instruction creates a fun learning environment that focuses on problem-solving and piques the interest of many students. Game-Based Learning (GBL) research by White and McCoy (2019) indicates that students engaging in GBL exhibited increased positive attitudes toward mathematics and improved assessment scores. Games and using fraction manipulatives in conjunction with books that pose problems will increase students’ engagement and greater mathematical achievement. References White, K. & McCoy, L. P.
