Box 1:Parts of a fraction Numerator --------------- Denomenator Box 2: Denomenator-tells you how many equal sized parts make up the WHOLE. -it is the bottom number in a fraction -the denomenator tells you how large or small the parts are. Box 3: (a picture of a square with line in the middle) halves 2=sized pieces (picture of a square with 2 lines going down) thirds 3=sized pieces (picture of a square with a line going horizontally and 3 lines vertical) eighths 4=sized pieces As the denomenator gets larger the equal sized pieces get smaller. Box 4: Numerator-it is the top number in a fraction -tells you how many parts of the whole you have -when the numerator and denomenator are the same (4/4) you have 1 whole. -when the numerator is larger than the denomenator it is an improper fraction. You have more than 1 whole. Box 5: (picture of square with line vertical and 1 half of it is shaded) 1 piece out of 2 (picture of square with 2 vertical lines and 2 thirds of it is shaded) 2 pieces out of 3 (picture of square with 1 horizontal line and 3 vertical lines, 3/8th of it is shaded) 3 pieces out of 8 (picture of square with 1 vertical and horizontal line, all shaded) 4/4 4 pieces out of 4 or 1 whole 5/4= (picture of square with 1 vertical and horizontal line, all shaded) and (picture of square 1 vertical and 1 horizontal, 1/4th of it is shaded) Box 6: What is larger? 1/2 or 3/8? (picture of square with vertical line and 1 half is shaded) (picture of square with 1 horizontal and 3 vertical lines, 3/8th of it is shaded) Make an equivalent fraction (picture of square with 1 horizontal and 3 vertical lines, 4/8th of it is shaded) (picture of square with 1 horizontal and 3 vertical lines, 3/8th of it is shaded) 4/8th is larger than 3/8th |
