Learning about fractions isn't always easy, but who says it can't be fun? Using one very entertaining cow, mathteacher Taryn Souders has devised a very clever (and fun) way of explaining fractions to beginning learners.One whole cow, calmly eating hay, decided to actdifferently on this particular day.One whole cow - what should we do? I know! Let's paint one half blue!Prompted by a poem and a visual clue, students are asked to answer what fraction is illustrated in the cow's antics,starting with halves and progressing into thirds, fourths, eighths, and tenths.What fraction of the cow is blue? Answer: #65533;What fraction of the cow is white? Answer: #65533;With the math problem featured as part of the artwork, students get an immediate sense of how to apply andunderstand the concept of fractions. How moo-velous! Taryn J. Souders lives in Winter Park, Florida. With a background in math education, she is passionate about keeping math fun for young students. This is her first children's book.Tatjana Mai-Wyss was born in Switzerland. She remembers learningabout fractions with the help of a typical Swiss cake. Tatjana has illustrated several children's books and her work has been published in books and magazines in the United States and abroad. She lives in South Carolina.
