A 30 piece wooden fractional learning aid. Fractions are arranged in arcs and fit in a 90 mm (3.5 in) circle. Hoops are included for ease of arranging fractions. Each hoop is 110 mm (4.3 in) in diameter. These fraction manipulatives are a perfect learning aid for teaching young children fractions and their role in general life and mathematics. They would be great for a classroom setting, homeschooling, or tutoring.
The fractions fit comfortably in hand and have a pleasant weight. They are laser cut from high quality 1/8" (3 mm) thick 3-ply birch plywood.
The fractions and hoops are suitable for use in their unfinished state but may also be finished. They may be painted, stained, and/or varnished without trouble. Some finish sanding will be required if you desire a very smooth surface.
When cutting wood with a laser, wooden edges are noticeably darker than the top and bottom. The darkening is fairly uniform and some people prefer the contrast. However, if you do not like the darker edges, they may be removed by sanding.
