Minfro Numbers

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

  • mixed numbers
  • proper fractions
  • whole 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!
