Zimmerman told Scholastic:

"Fractions always seem to trip up my students. The only way to combat fraction-mayhem is to provide students with a LOT of opportunities to experience fractions with tangible objects."

So if you're a parent or teacher, go find some LEGO bricks and take some time exploring how they work. Count the studs, explore the dimensions, and build some towers.
