Tiled Area Questions are designed to provide students with the opportunity to compose and decompose numbers.  This post primarily focuses on fractions.  If you are a K-2 teacher, you may really like this version.

Watch the video, download the resources, and give your student the opportunity to visualize, decompose, compare, and compose numbers.

I encourage you to give your students opportunities to see the same concept in many different ways.
