## The Importance of Teaching Unit Fractions

As educators, it’s essential to recognise the pivotal role that explicitly teaching unit fractions plays in laying a solid foundation for students’ mathematical understanding. Unit fractions serve as the building blocks upon which more complex fraction concepts are constructed. By focusing on unit fractions, teachers provide learners with a clear starting point from which they can develop a deep comprehension of fractions as a whole.

Explicit instruction in unit fractions not only helps students grasp fundamental concepts but also enables them to apply their knowledge confidently in various mathematical contexts. Moreover, understanding unit fractions fosters critical thinking skills as students learn to compare, order, and manipulate fractions effectively. By emphasising the importance of teaching unit fractions, educators empower their students to navigate the world of mathematics with confidence and proficiency.
