FRACTIONS

Lets draw a rectangle, and divide it in two

equal parts...

- The red part of the rectangle represents a

fraction - 1/2 (one half)

Now, lets draw a circle and divide it in two

equal parts...

- The red part of the circle represents a fraction
- 1/2 (one half)

Very Good!!! Now lets draw another rectangle and

divide it in three equal parts...

- The red part of the rectangle represents another

fraction 1/3 (one third)

Very Good!!! Now lets draw a circle and divide

it in 4 equal parts...

- The red part of the circle represents a fraction
- 1/4 (one fourth)

Very Good!!! Now you know what a Fraction is

!!! Remember that in a fraction the number

below the line indicates the total number of

equal parts in which an object is divided

and the number above the line indicates the

number of parts selected in that object...

So, you can represent different fractions with

the same object For example, look at the

following object...

Now see how this rectangle can be used to show

different fractions.

If we select 1 part of this rectangle, What is

the fraction?

If we select 1 part of this rectangle, What is

the fraction?

1 ----- 4

If we select 2 parts of this rectangle, what is

the fraction?

If we select 2 parts of this rectangle, what is

the fraction?

2 ------- 4

If we select 3 parts of this object, what is

the fraction?

If we select 3 parts of this object, what is

the fraction?

3 ------- 4
