Introduction: STEM education is gaining momentum in Pakistan, providing opportunities for advancement and innovation. Primary mathematics education fosters critical thinking and problem-solving in unique situations. An organized abstraction method is needed to grasp math, especially fractions.

Methodology: The present research used the ELPS technique to improve primary-level math teachers' and students' grasp of fractions. Using a "Randomized Pretest Posttest Control Group Design," ELPS was used for six weeks. The study included 285 Rahim Yar Khan pupils from diverse schools in Experimental and Comparison groups.

Results/Findings: The ELPS technique had a considerable favorable influence on pupils' fraction learning. Experimental students using ELPS had better arithmetic comprehension than Comparison students using normal math education. This shows that ELPS helps primary school kids understand fractions.

Future Direction: This study suggests developing tools and resources to enhance fraction teaching and learning. The unique ELPS method for teaching fractions in primary arithmetic classrooms offers opportunities for mathematics education research and improvement.
