BC: SPRING INTO ACTION WITH FRACTIONS!
FC: "EGG"TRAORDINARY FRACTION FACTS! | By: Cheryl C. Sawyer
1: “A man is like a fraction whose numerator is what he is and whose denominator is what he thinks of himself. The larger the denominator the smaller the fraction.” Author Unknown
2: TEKS 111.15. Mathematics, Grade 3 (Fractions) 3.2 Number, operation, and quantitative reasoning. The student uses fraction names and symbols (with denominators of 12 or less) to describe fractional parts of whole objects or sets of objects. The student is expected to:
3: A.Construct concrete models of fractions; B.Compare fractional parts of whole objects or sets of objects in a problem situation using concrete models. C.Use fraction names and symbols to describe fractional parts of whole objects or sets of objects. D.Construct concrete models of equivalent fractions for fractional parts of whole objects.
4: FRACTIONS ARE PARTS OF A WHOLE NUMBER!
5: Three out of twelve eggs are blue, therefore, the fraction is represented as 3/12.
6: Nothing Is So Beautiful As Spring
7: The denominator tells us how many eggs there are or how many parts are in the whole. While the numerator tells us the number of eggs that are different from the whole.
8: The Fraction can be reduced if eggs can be evenly divided.
9: It's a beautiful day, don't let it get away. | Since the eggs can be evenly divided, the blue eggs represent 1/4 of the total eggs and the pink eggs represents 3/4 of the total eggs.
10: Compare and Order Fractions: When comparing fractions and the denominators are the same, we simply compare the numerators. 4/12 & 6/12
11: Is the fraction on the left greater than (>), less than (<), or equal to (=) the fraction on the right? 4/12 < 6/12 or 4/12 less than 6/12
12: Comparing half to a whole.
13: There are 12 eggs. Half (1/2) the eggs are green and the other half (1/2) is yellow. Therefore, six (6) green eggs are half (1/2) of all twelve (12) eggs.
