fractions

what they are, and how to identify them BY: Athens Allec

Definition

A fraction is a part of a whole. It can be represented by a mixed number( for example 1 1/2) or they can be a improper fraction( 3/2 ).

To find a fraction

FIRST- find how many pieces are in that whole

SECOND- count how many pieces that are shaded, taken away, eaten, broke, smashed, colored, E.T.C

THIRD put that number over how many total pieces there are

THEN YOU HAVE A FRACTION :)
