Minfro Numbers

Minfro Math is NOT some kind of "new math." It is an attempt to think logically about arithmetic.

The minfro numbers are the numbers children are naturally concerned with:

  • whole numbers
  • proper fractions
  • mixed numbers
These three types of numbers combine to form a beautiful number system in its own right, and this number system deserves a name.

A children's name, if you will, not a name borrowed from algebra.

MINFRO numbers include MIxed Numbers such as 1 ¾, 2 ½...

MINFRO numbers include Proper FRactions such as ¼, ½...

MINFRO numbers include WhOle Numbers such as 1, 2, 3, ...

Thus we have... THE Minfro Numbers!
