**http://math.rice.edu/~lanius/Patterns/ No Matter What Shape Your Fractions Are In = In a word, these colorful geometric puzzles and exercises for elementary and middle school students are just plain fun. There is an interactive Pattern Blocks (you'll find the What Fun link on the front page.) Author Cynthia Lanius of Rice University explains it this way "These activities are designed to cause students to think; they are not algorithmic. They do not say, ‘To add fractions, do step one, step two, step three.' Students will explore geometric models of fractions and discover relations among them."**
