This manipulative is a wonderful way of teaching children the concept of fractions and parts, along with strengthening the learning of shapes and matching.
There are four circles ranging from one whole to one-fourth. Starting with a whole circle, the next level has the piece cut into two, then into one-third, and the final level into one-fourth. Allow the child to explore with the various pieces on the base board to develop an understanding of fractions.
The next step adds another dimension since each part has a cavity of a particular shape. The child gets to make a whole circle on the base board each time by matching the shape(s) on the pieces to the corresponding shape (s) on the base. Made of durable wood, non-toxic inks and comes with a storage bag. 3+
