Piece = Part = Portion

by Scott Gifford Illustrated by Shmuel Thaler
Just as "hola" and "bonjour" both mean "hello" in different languages, fractions, decimals, and percents describe the same quantities in different ways. While it may sound simple, this basic math concept often baffles children. The straightforward text and photographic examples from everyday life in Piece = Part = Portion are a terrific boon to elementary school math students everywhere.
