### Working with fractions at l1

1. 1. Adult Numeracy Level 1 Working With Fractions Dave Cross Suffolk New College
2. 2. Fractions at Level 1 <ul><li>A fraction shows a number as mixture of whole numbers (integers) and parts of a whole (fractions) </li></ul>One and a Half = = = 1.5 Or Three Halfs One whole and one half 1- 2 1 3-2
3. 3. Fractions at Level 1 <ul><li>A proper fraction represents less than one whole </li></ul>The top number (numerator) is lower in value than the bottom number (denominator) 2 1
4. 4. Fractions at Level 1 <ul><li>An improper fraction represents more than one whole </li></ul>The top number (numerator) is higher in value than the bottom number (denominator) 2 3
5. 5. Fractions at Level 1 <ul><li>To turn an improper fraction into a mixed fraction we need to find how many times we can get the denominator into the numerator, using division </li></ul>So here we divide 3 by 2 giving one and a half Thus 3/2 (improper) = 1 ½ (Mixed) 2 3
6. 6. Fractions at Level 1 <ul><li>Notice the meaning of the line that separates the Numerator and the Denominator </li></ul>If we divide the number above the line by the number below, this will give us the same number expressed as a decimal = 2 3 1 0 3. 2 5 1.
