Fractions are Everywhere
Later on, you will learn to add fractions, subtract fractions, multiply fractions and express the same fractions using smaller numbers.
Fractions are part of a mathematic principle, which means that fractions are in your life. Fractions are in pizza slices, in money, in time, in percentages and everywhere.
1/4 of the football game is a quarter, and it is also 15 minutes long or one-fourth of an hour.
School shirts are on sale and they are 1/2 off! This means they are 50 percent less than they were before the sale.
The baby’s shoes were a size 3 but now they are a size 3 ½. They are size 3 but also add in another ½ size that makes them just a half size as big as before, yet they are still less than size 4.
You see fractions will become a part of your life, so enjoy working with them and you too, will become a whizz at mathematical fractions.
