We have a set of these for our homeschool classroom. They are very educational, illustrate fractions well, and are colorful. On the downside they are thin plastic and the larger pieces can break easily if the kids aren't very careful with them (especially the '1'). The other big problem is the tray they come in. Unless it's sitting flat on a surface where it will not be disturbed all the little tiles will come out. We now keep them in a ziploc bag instead which is easier but it's annoying to have to pick out all the little ones to show 1/12th, it's also easy for these tiny tiles to get lost.

I am amazed at the amount of learning they facilitate. My students love to use these tiles. It really helps them to be able to see the fractions and compare and make equivalent fractions.

I got these for my 2nd grade daughter who was being introduced to fractions. When I try to get them out, she just sighs & says, "yeah mom, I already know it!" She finds them boring & is much more interested in more applicable fractions such as cutting a pizza, candy bar, etc. Also, I found that it has a good many fraction pieces, but when you go to comparing that 1/3 of 6 is 2, it doesn't allow for that computation as there are no 1/6th pieces to compare. However, with the cuisenaire rods, you can easily compute that 1/3 of six is the rod with 2 cubes. Anyway, I bought both items at about the same time & have really not used these as the cuisenaire rods seem to do what these do, plus so much more.Learning Resources Connecting Cuisenaire Rods Introductory Set

I bought this for my K-er to play around with when it was on sale. After a couple of days of playing around, she was able to add fractions with the same denominator, compare fraction sizes, and make wholes from parts. Needless to say, this set is an amazing tool for a visual learner.

In addition to the tray and tiles, it also comes with instructions with several games and activities to use with the set. There are also stickers showing different fractional representations. For example, they have pie part fractions as stickers and the stickers are color-coded to match with the tiles. The 1/4 tiles are yellow, so the pie part 1/4 stickers are also yellow. This is going to help in the future when I want to show that a fraction can be represented in many different ways. I plan on putting the stickers on index cards to use with the set.

On the downside, the set feels like very cheap plastic. Because it doesn't feel sturdy at all, I would think that in a larger classroom it would be easily broken and the pieces would quickly be lost.

I read the review about the smaller pieces popping out and the tray needing to be on a flat surface, so we store it flat on my daughter's bookshelf and do any work on a table.

I taught math for nearly 25 years. I tried to get Saxon in my classroom but they weren't "sexy" enough for the teacher committees that review for the school district (which I was always on, every 7 years we got new books). Another reason they never got into the schools is that at the book conventions where teachers & administrators go to evaluate the texts, the bigger text book manufacturers would literally 'wine & dine' us in Las Vegas. Some take you out to restaurants, most have food/drink in a motel suite & pitch their books. As a result, 'easy' teachers suseptible to marketing ploys would fall for those companies with the most freebies. When they get back & go before the school board with their recommendation, it was never the best text for kids. I always lost out to the 'sheeple' who would go with me to the conventions & fall for the free food & goodies. The only good part was getting free teacher complete sets I could use for certain lesson plans where the text we were stuck with wasn't good enough. However, most teachers just go thru the text from beginning to as far as they feel comfortable teaching to. "Read the ch. & do the questions at the end". Such crap. It's no wonder our students are far behind in math. With Saxon that would never happen. Lots of review before going to the next concept. Each builds on previous concepts which are reviewed constantly so no kid would be lost. As it is, teachers go on to the next page in the book whether students understand concepts needed before that page or not. After leaving the public school system, I homeschooled my grandson until 6th grade when I went along with the "they need socialization with other kids" nonsense. I wouldn't fall for that again either.Read more ›

I bought this for the 'Homework Help' Center at my local library. The librarians were thrilled with it and we know it will be useful for the upcoming school year when the elementary kids are studying fractions.

I want to like this more. As a concept it is great for teaching fractions. But what I would really love is for it to be magnetic and/or have a locking lid to keep all the pieces contained. It comes with additional stickers you can use that use other fractions like pie charts and decimals. Again it is a good resource but I wish they put a little bit more effort into it to make it a more solid resource and not so easy to lose or misplace pieces or awkward to store.
