FRACTIONS What are Fractions? When an object is broken up into a number of parts, these parts must all be the same size. These equal parts can be counted to become a fraction of that object. Fractional numbers have two parts. o The bottom number, or denominator, is the total number of equal parts the object has been broken into. o The top number, or numerator, is the shaded or missing part. How to figure out fractions: To find the proper fraction to go with a given object such as a pie: 1. Count the total number of pieces the object has. 2. Think about how big one of those pieces would be. In this case, the pie has been cut into two pieces. This means that each piece is half or ½ (1 out of 2 pieces) of the pie. This pie has been cut into three pieces. Each piece from this pie is a third of the pie or 1/3 (1 out of 3 pieces). © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved.

This pie has four equal pieces. Each piece is a fourth or ¼ (1 out of 4 pieces) of the pie. In order to show ½, 1/3, or ¼, each part of the object needs to be the same size. For example: This pie does not have three equal pieces. That means each piece of pie is not 1/3. © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved.
