More **Homework Help**

Fractions are one of the most dreaded homework topics! Using the example of a pizza or measuring cups, it isn’t so hard to understand what half means or 1/4. What IS hard is remembering the rules for how you add, subtract, multiply, or divide them. And then there is comparing them or simplifying them. There is so much to remember!

The books, activities and websites below can help you figure out that dreaded fraction homework! Like everything though, a sense of humor is going to help! Get starting by reading **Fractions in Disguise**. When a valuable fraction goes missing, young inventor George Cornelius Factor, suspecting the work of the villainous Dr. Brok, creates a tool for simplifying and revealing fractions that have been sneakily disguised.

It IS true that fractions are a math concept that we do actually use all the time in real life. We use fractions to divide money or cookies on a plate or to measure boards for a building project. They are used a lot in cooking too. You’ll need them later, so don’t give up! You can do it!
