“Math gets a whole lot harder for students when fractions and decimals come into the picture in 4th and 5th grade. The research-based teaching techniques and lessons in Fraction Nation extend the students' familiar number system to the space between the wholes, naturally building the solid understanding and fluency students need.””

—David Dockterman, Chief Math Officer at Scholastic
