FRACTIONS

2
**Let’s draw a rectangle, and divide it in two equal parts...**

3
**The red part of the rectangle represents a fraction… 1/2 (one half)**

4
**Now, let’s draw a circle and divide it in two equal parts...**

5
**The red part of the circle represents a fraction… 1/2 (one half)**

6
**Very Good!!! Now let’s draw another rectangle and divide it in three equal parts...**

7
**The red part of the rectangle represents another fraction… 1/3 (one third)**

8
**Very Good!!! Now let’s draw a circle and divide it in 4 equal parts...**

9
**The red part of the circle represents a fraction… 1/4 (one fourth)**

10
**Very Good. Now you know what a Fraction is**

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…

11
**and the number above the line indicates the number of parts “selected” in that object...**

12
So, you can represent different fractions with the same object … For example, look at the following object...

13
**Now see how this rectangle can be used to show different fractions….**

14
**If we “select” 1 part of this rectangle, What is the fraction?**

15
**If we “select” 1 part of this rectangle, What is the fraction?**

16
**If we “select” 2 parts of this rectangle, what is the fraction?**

17
**If we “select” 2 parts of this rectangle, what is the fraction?**

4

18
**If we “select” 3 parts of this object, what is the fraction?**

19
**If we “select” 3 parts of this object, what is the fraction?**
