3.0 out of 5 stars three quarters good, 15 April 2009
= Durability:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Learning Resources Fraction Tower Equivalency Cube (Office Product)
I purchased this resource to use with adults who are struggling with fraction/ percentage/ decimal equivalents. They have proved to be popular and effective, so I would say they were worth the money. However, the quality was not great. A couple of the markings on one of the blocks just wiped off and we had to replace them with stickers. I wouldn't recommend them for areas where they would get a lot of use, e.g. in a primary school classroom.

This review was good, but I assume this person is a teacher or works in a teaching environment, so why is the title of the review "three quarters good", when there are 5 stars and he/she has ticked 3 of them. Don't they mean "three fifths good"? And they're teaching adults about fractions?! No wonder kids and adults have no concept of basic maths with teachers like these!

I was going to buy this for home use but thanks to your review I've saved some money, thanks!

To J. Cheung: I think your comment was rather harsh. You assume to know this person's teaching skills just from a review title! The reviewer may have only have selected 3 out of 5 stars but her review title probably meant it's three-quarters goods as opposed to just three-fifths and that it just doesn't quite deserve a four-fifths positive rating.
