Reinforce learning fractions at home with 10 Minutes a Day: Fractions, a workbook that supports school curriculum and classroom teaching on fractions by adding quick but valuable practice time for adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing fractions. 10 Minutes a Day: Fractions utilizes a proven learning strategy for learning fractions. Encourage your child's learning with the effective "little and often" learning strategy outlined in our 10 Minutes a Day workbooks. Proven effective, this leveled, curriculum-supporting method is great for children who resist long periods of study, or for children who need focused attention in fractions. 10 Minutes a Day: Fractions is different than other study books because it includes an embedded LCD timer that encourages children to beat the clock, adding an extra element of challenge to focused study time. The 10 Minutes a Day: Fractions workbook is broken into study challenges and exercises designed to take up to 10 minutes to complete. Children work through a series of quick-answer questions, then move onto extension activities and timed exercises if they have time left after the first round of study questions. The timer acts as a stopwatch for skills challenges, and many kids are surprised to find that beating the timer can actually be fun. 10 Minutes a Day: Fractions helps children learn by supplementing school curriculum and strengthening the important skills set of learning fractions. Parents will love that 10 Minutes a Day: Fractions helps them fit short bursts of study into already busy days, and that 10 Minutes a Day: Fractions includes an answer key for parents, as well as notes on common pitfalls and how to teach children to overcome them.
