Fraction Scribbler!!

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
