The Critical Thinking Co. - Understanding Fractions Review



Disclosure: I received this complimentary product through the Homeschool Review Crew.


We recently had the opportunity to review Understanding Fractions published by The Critical Thinking Co.  The workbook has provided a lot of extra help for the girls as they are working to conquer these math skills.



Understanding Fractions was written by Robert Femiano.  This book of roughly 50 pages of fraction practice, was written to be used by students in grades 2-4.  

Inside of this title, students will be practicing:

  • The Meaning of fractions
  • Writing and using fractions
  • Finding common denominators
  • Simple adding and subtracting of fractions
Using fraction circles cut-outs, students can truly "see" how fractions work.  These pages can be cut out and colored by students, or even laminated or added to card stock to make them last longer.  For those students in the very early stages of fractions, these are a great addition to mastering their fractions.



Inside the front cover of the book, suggestions are given on how to students can reach their full success while using this book.  It is encouraged for students to work along with their teacher through the pages.  

Each page contains many practice examples, including story problems.  



Understanding Fractions is not meant as a stand alone curriculum.  But as practice to mastery.  That is how we have been using it.  As the student works with their teacher, the teacher is available to answer questions.  Included in the back of the book are the answers, just in case they need a little help themselves.  


Caty has struggled with fractions for a while now.  Each page usually took roughly 20 minutes, depending on our struggles.  These pages can definitely be used by anyone who may be struggling with these skills, no matter what education style they are working through at the moment.  There are even more challenging questions that are marked with a star.  

The extra practice has helped her a lot.  Using Understanding Fractions has saved me time from hunting down extra worksheets and money from printing a bunch of items also.  It is definitely worth the using Understanding Fractions in your schooling.  It can be used with both public school and homeschool students.  

We have used several of the publications from The Critical Thinking Co. for various subjects in our studies.  We have always been impressed and have enjoyed the help in working to mastery.  I encourage you to check out all they have to offer in boosting your student's critical thinking skills.

  2. Nobody’s homeschool is perfect. We may face hard days, crabby days, sick days and even full of doubt days many times. But right now, you need to focus on the positive part and think about how you can make your homeschooling even more fun and better. Yes, you heard that right! Homeschooling can prove to be a lot of fun if you plan it well.

    Before proceeding, we have a list of simple questions that you must ask yourself as a beginner or an existing homeschooler.
    Is it okay to pick up a sport or a game and set the curriculum aside for some time?
    Can we include games as a part of the curriculum?
    Is this the right approach to count it as a part of homeschooling?
    Hopefully, you’ll get answers to all your queries once you read this article till the end. Stay tuned! learn more:https://allroundclub.com/blog/add-more-play-homeschooling/

  3. As the book name "Understanding Fractions" shows, it will help to give a careful establishment in getting divisions. The book starts with the importance of parts and their many uses - and closes with the basic math of looking at, adding, and taking away portions both outwardly and mathematically. This book incorporates cut-out part circles that empower instructors to exhibit key ideas and furnish understudies with a material encounter to support the illustration and help them learn new ideas.
