Use items that are velcroed together to represent the whole and have the student separate the whole into parts.
A fraction is a value in math that represents equal parts of a whole number. You can take a number like 1 and divide it into 6 equal parts. Think about a pie for this one. You have one pie and then you cut it into six equal pieces.
Each of those pieces represents one sixth of the pie. The top number, the numerator, represents how many you have. The bottom number, the denominator, represents the number of possible equal parts. There are only 3 pieces of pie left in the tin. What is the fraction that represents the number of pieces in the tin?
That means three eighths of the pie is left. I have a bunch of bananas. There were originally 9 bananas but I only have 2 left. What is the fraction that represents how many bananas I have left? That means only two ninths of my bananas are left.
Basic Parts of a Fraction The two big terms in fractions are numerators and denominators. A fraction has a top number and a bottom number.
Numerators are on the top and denominators are on the bottom. It is that simple. The numerator is the first number in a division problem dividend. The denominator is the second number in a division problem divisor. You cannot divide numbers by zero in any of our problems. You can divide things by one.
The denominator can never be zero. Any division problem that has the same answer can be written as an equivalent fraction. You can also create an equivalent fraction when you multiply by 1 in fraction form. Any number multiplied by 1 is equal to the original number.
When you learn more about math, you will learn the ability to multiply by 1 is called the identity property. They are all equivalent fractions.
If you use a fraction that is equivalent to one, you can solve a bunch of problems. You wind up multiplying the numerator and denominator by the same number to make new equivalent fractions. All we did was multiply by different versions of 1.
The numbers changed, but the values always stayed the same. The list goes on forever.Decimals and Fractions. Learning Objective(s) 1. Read and write numbers in decimal notation. 2. Write decimals as fractions. 3. Write fractions as decimals.
Introduction. In addition to fraction notation, decimal notation is another way to write numbers between 0 and 1.
Decimals can also be used to write numbers between any two whole. Students learn to convert fractions to decimals. For example, to convert the fraction 7/10 to a decimal, first read the fraction as "7 tenths". Next, since the tenths place is one place to the right of the decimal point, 7 tenths can be written as the decimal In this lesson you will learn how to convert fractions into decimals to the hundredths place.

In this game you can exercise on writing it in fractional, decimal and percentage terms. Write as decimals and fractions. Students make a bracelet using two different color beads then describe the colors used to make the bracelet in fractions.
Calculate . In this lesson you will learn how to find the decimal equivalent of any fraction or mixed number by using the standard algorithm for decimal division.
