ab: Summary: Vince Wright makes a convincing argument for presenting children
with a different “prototype” of a fraction to the typical one-half.
Consider how the prototype that Wright mentions may be applied to a
variety of fraction concepts. We are sure that you will never look at a
doughnut in quite the same way. (ERIC)
