It's the first move into abstract thinking, the first time we ask kids to work in the space between whole numbers like 1, 2, and 3. It's when math gets hard. It's fractions.

Scholastic has introduced Fraction Nation™, designed to help students build a strong foundation for understanding the concept of fractions in 15-minute practice sessions, 3-to-5 times a week.

Grounded on four research-based teaching principles, Fraction Nation uses visual models, supports students through adaptive technology and manageable chunks of information; and provides lessons and practice.
