Fraction and Decimal Models Name Fraction Introduction Notes # Date Last, First # Date Fractions have two parts: The top number is the Numerator. It shows the number of parts to count. Numerator Denominator The bottom number is the Denominator. It shows the number of equal parts it takes to make one whole unit.

Fraction Introduction Notes
Fraction and Decimal Models Name Fraction Introduction Notes There are 3 types of fractions: # Date Last, First # Date A) Common or proper fractions The denominator of a common fraction is always greater than the numerator. (“big bottom” fractions) 3/4 is an example of a common fraction. Common fractions always equal values less than 1.
