Fraction puzzle: great tool, poor quality
I love RightStart. We’ve been using it for four years of homeschool math. The manipulatives are excellent for visual learners. This puzzle is no exception and it’s a much easier tool to use and store than some of the other fraction manipulatives. BUT for the price, the quality is incredibly poor. It’s made out of plywood, the ink on one of my 1/10 pieces didn’t fully print (it’s good enough to do the job), and the top edges of multiple pieces are very poorly cut, jagged and one is missing a small chunk from the corner. I was shocked at how bad the quality was when I got it. Especially for the price.
If you are on a tight budget and quality control isn’t an issue for you, then I recommend it. If you’re willing to spend more and/or going to be using it for years for multiple learners I recommend checking out Etsy for better options. I was so dissatisfied with the quality, I went to Etsy and purchased an additional fraction puzzle that had decimals on the opposite side (made from real wood with numbers etched instead of printed) from a vendor there and it wasn’t much more expensive.
RightStart curriculum is amazing.
This puzzle is not.
