# FOCUS ON FRACTIONS

#### Here's what's inside the Multisensory Maths - Focus On Fractions Training

So many of our students struggle when it comes to understanding fractions, decimals and percents. We tend to focus on teaching procedures to calculate answers, only to find that mastery of these concepts continue to evade a student. This shortcoming affects their confidence not only for assessments and exams, but for everyday life applications, as well as future study options and life career choices.

You've likely tried teaching fractions with pie graphs and slices of pizza, only to find it ineffective. The student doesn't understand the concept because they have no tactile understanding of how to divide and decimalise a number.

Using our specific multisensory approach, hands-on Advanced Kit and 'I-CRAVE Maths' methodology, students can confidently and easily learn fractions and beyond!
