# Fractions and Other Topics

In previous lessons, students have learned basic operations with whole numbers. Epsilon covers these same operations with fractions. Fractions are presented in an intuitive way with visual explanations of equivalent fractions, common denominators, and fractions and numbers larger than one. Fractions and operations are illustrated using our proprietary Fraction Overlay manipulatives.

The fold-shut case has tabbed flaps and clearly-marked sections so overlays stay neatly stored, and the convenient size stands on a bookshelf but is easy to take along. Forty-nine total pieces represent halves through sixteenths. There are 5 green, 2 orange, 3 pink, 4 yellow, 5 blue, 6 purple, and 8 brown colored vinyl pieces representing the numerator. Clear lined vinyl overlays portray the denominator, with two each of halves, thirds, fourths, fifths, sixths, eighths, and tenths, and one half-sheet each of eighths and sixteenths.
