Web Math is another must visit site that clearly explains math. Topics include General Math, K-8 Math, Algebra, Plots and Geometry, Tri and Calculus. This site has interactive learning sections. One section is on comparing fractions. Input your fractions and the site converts the fractions to shaded circles and explains why one is larger than the other.
Rain Forest Math Ideas by Jenny Eather provides wonderful math practice from grades K through 6.
