I began playing with Fraction Talks in May 2015 after listening to a keynote from Ilana Horn (@ilana_horn). The goal was to develop a simple visual that could foster creative thinking around fractions. An unassuming idea and open disposition began to open up huge spaces for mathematical action for my students.

The idea is simple, the medium is practical, and the thinking is rich. This site is a growing cache of materials designed for classroom teachers and by classroom teachers. Enjoy, invent, contribute.
