### The Fractions Pack

1. 1. Hi... I am Fractionstein. Did you know that fractions are not as scary as you might think? Learn along with me and you will be an expert at fractions in no time at all!
2. 2. What are fractions? Fractions are parts of whole things. We use fractions every day! The time is quarter past twelve. Somebody has already eaten three-quarters of this pizza! Zack played really well in the ﬁrst half of the match! Mia is 2 ½ years old. www.teachingpacks.co.uk Images: © ThinkStock ©
3. 3. We write fractions using a numerator and a denominator. 3 4 The numerator tells us how many parts we have. The denominator tells us how many parts something was (or is) divided into. 3 4 5 8 There is one piece of cake left. There are ﬁve green buttons. There are eight buttons altogether. 1 6 The cake was cut into six pieces. There are three pieces left. There were four pieces. www.teachingpacks.co.uk Images: © ThinkStock ©
4. 4. There are lots of different types of fractions. Here are some of them... What fraction of my flag is coloured pink? Halves Quarters Eighths Thirds Fifths Tenths www.teachingpacks.co.uk © 1 2 1 3 1 4 1 5 1 8 1 10 What do you notice about the size of the pieces in each fraction?
5. 5. www.teachingpacks.co.uk © Did you know that we can add and subtract fractions? If the denominators are the same, adding and subtracting fractions is easy. 1 5 3 5 4 5 7 8 3 8 4 8 + = - = If the denominators are different, we have to change the fractions so that they have a common denominator. ?+ =4 5 3 4 31 20 + =16 20 15 20 ?- =7 8 1 3 13 24 - =21 24 8 24
6. 6. www.teachingpacks.co.uk © Fraction Decimal Percentage 1 1 100% 3/4 0.75 75% 2/3 0.6 66.6% 1/2 0.5 50% 1/3 0.3 33.3% 1/4 0.25 25% 1/5 0.2 20% 1/8 0.125 12.5% 1/10 0.1 10% 1/100 0.01 1% It is helpful if you can remember these fractions, decimals and percentages!
7. 7. www.teachingpacks.co.uk© fraction numerator denominator common denominator cancel simplify decimal decimal point Fractions are parts of whole things. This is the top number in a fraction. It tells us how many parts we have. This is the bottom number in a fraction. It tells us how many parts something was (or is) divided into. Different fractions that all have the same denominator. This makes it easier to order, add and subtract them. Cancelling fractions is when we divide the numerator and denominator by the same number. Simplifying fractions means ﬁnding an equivalent fraction where the numerator and denominator are as small as they can be. Decimal numbers contain a decimal point. They might also include tenths, hundredths and other numbers smaller than one. A decimal point separates the whole numbers from the numbers that are smaller than one. 3 4 1 7 3 5 5 7 1 8 3 8 7 8 10 100 1 10 = ÷ 10 ÷ 10 9 27 1 3 = 27.617 0.5 3.04 874.024
