At the moment our class has been focusing on fractions and decimals. A fraction is an equal part of a whole thing. Some examples are: 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 2/5.
We have been trying to find interesting facts and equvilant fractions to help our understanding. We have found out that if you can half the top and bottom number it has an equivalent fraction (This also works if you can devide it by three). Some equvilant fractions are:
•2/4 = 1/2
•3/9 = 1/3
• 1/1 = Whole
Not all fractions have equalvalent fractions.
I hope you learnt some interesting facts about fractions.
What other facts on fractions do you know?
Do you know any really tricky tricks for fractions.
