PATTERN BLOCKS Fractions Using Pattern Blocks A fraction is a PART of a WHOLE of something. Here’s an example: If your brother eats 5 out of the 8 pieces of pizza, you can say he ate 5/8 of the pizza. 5 = the number of pieces of pizza your brother ate 8 = the TOTAL number of pieces of pizza Note: Fractions need to consist of EQUAL pieces, parts, or sections. You can use PATTERN BLOCKS to help learn about fractions. Common colored pattern blocks you may use in school: Triangle Rhombus © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved.
