Dear Readers: Finally, a book that strives to take the mystery out of fractions. Where was this book three decades ago when I really needed it? As a bonus, some of the examples appear to use Muslim names like Ali.
As always, please show your support to Muslim writers by reading their books and telling others about the ones you like.
AUTHOR NAME AND WEBSITE:
Eng S Jama
WHAT THE BOOK IS ABOUT:
Fractions. Visual maths fractions, to be exact.
Part of a series – Fractions Visually – that includes a colouring workbook, paperbacks (colour & B/W), workbooks (colour & B/W) and colour e-books (Kindle and ePUB).
WHY I WROTE IT:
To make understanding and adding fractions extremely simple and visual for everyone, especially children.
It’s much easier to understand something when you visualise it!
This is even more so in today’s visual content and/or ‘Show Me’ learning style, thanks to modern electronic technologies; the Internet, computers, smartphones/mobile devices, wide screens, smart TVs, interactive/touch screens, apps and so on.
Hence, Fractions Visually.
AN EXCERPT OF THE BOOK:
Ali and Asha are friends and often share things.
For the following shapes, one of them gets the shaded part and the other will get the unshaded part.
Ali and Asha also share things with their friends Alex and Ella.
For the following shapes, everyone gets a quarter (one-fourth ) or half of half!
That’s halving for two groups. Then halving again for each.
WHERE TO BUY IT:
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
An experienced electronics engineer turned educational tutor and self-published author with 18 years of industry experience in engineering, education and the community.
