Is this what you are looking for? It works with either \include or \input.

%root file

\section{Introducing Fractions}\label{sec:introducingfractions}
See also section  \ref{sec:discussion}, \nameref{sec:discussion}, on page \pageref{sec:discussion}. 

Read first section \ref{sec:introducingfractions}, \nameref{sec:introducingfractions},  on page \pageref{sec:introducingfractions}

I hope this helps.
