Reviewing Fraction Concepts
• Except for halves, fraction words such as third,
fourth, sixth, and eighth suggest the number of
equal parts.
• What are the fraction words for five equal parts?
• What are the fraction words for ten equal parts?
• What do the denominators (under the fraction bar)
tell us?
• What do the numerators (above the fraction bar)
tell us?
• What does the fraction ¾ tell represent?
• What does the fraction 0/4 represent?
• What does the fraction 8/8 represent?

on activity sheets at the back of the journal.

37
Using Fraction Cards
• Each fraction card represents ONE.
• They are all the same size.
• The number of strips and shading is different
and the shaded fractional part is named on the
back.
• Find cards with matching fractional parts. These
different fractions, which show the same amount
of the whole, are called
• Equivalent Fractions

halves?
• How is that different than the apple fractions
we have used?

58
Mixed Numbers
• When you show a quantity or amount using both
a whole number and a fraction, you have used a
mixed number.

List some examples of mixed numbers
When are some times when we use mixed
numbers?
