Title: FUN WITH FRACTIONS!

1
FUN WITH FRACTIONS!
• A Study Guide
• and
• Review Game

2
What is a fraction?
• A symbol that is used to name equal parts of a
whole.
• A fraction has a NUMERATOR.
• The numerator is the top number and it names the
• A fraction has a DENOMINATOR
• The denominator is the bottom number and it names
the total number of pieces in the whole.

3
Heres a Hint
• 24

The number in the NORTH is the Numerator!
The number that is DOWN is the Denominator!
4
Part of a whole
• 3 is yellow
• 8

5
Part of a set
4 of the set are pears5

Finding Equivalent Fractions
• EQUivALent means EQUAL!
• 3 is EQUivALent to 16

10
Heres a Hint
• To find equivalent fractionsLOOK FOR A PATTERN

Heres Another Hint
• To find equivalent fractionsUSE BOTTOMS UP!

Five-twelfths is less than two-thirds
14
Ordering Fractions
• You will be asked to order fractions from
Greatest to Least and from Least to Greatest
• You have three strategies to choose from
• Draw a picture
• Use Bottoms Up
• Use Fraction Fringe

15
Ordering Fractions withDrawing A Picture
•   1 1 1
• 3 6 9

Least to greatest    1 1 1 9
6 3

Ordering Fractions with Bottoms Up
•   1 1 1
• 3 6 9
• Compare 1 and 1 3 6
• Compare 1 and 1 3 9
• Compare 1 and 1 6 9

Since 1/3 was largest 2 times, it is the largest
fraction! 1/6 is next, followed by 1/9.

Finding Parts of a Set
When a picture is given, put the items into
groups based on the number in the denominator.
1 of 9 books 3 books in each group 3
19
Finding Parts of a Set
• When a picture is not given, you have two
choices
• Draw a picture and solve!
• Do the math!

20
8 times what 64?
?
• 1 Of 64
• 8

21
Mixed Numbers
• A mixed number is a whole number and a fraction
combined

22
Mixed Numbers
• Count the WHOLEs first
• Then find the FRACTIONal part

23
Fraction Problem Solving
• USE YOUR STRATEGIES!!! Do not try to work out
• Review all of the tricks and hints in this
slideshow!
• Review your notes from class!
• PRACTICE! PRACTICE! PRACTICE!

Why do I need to know this stuff?
order to figure out how to make only part of a
recipe because you do not want to feed ten
people, but only five, fractions will be very
