Today we have explored what a fraction is and identified different fractions. We found out that fractions show equal parts of a whole. We used several resources to find fractions and explored different ways that we can represent each fraction. We also discussed how a fraction is represented and what each number in a fraction shows.

Challenge:

Write a definition for a fraction.

Which fraction is bigger, one tenth or one half?

A fraction is like a proportion of something whole. For example if I have one third of a pizza and Lucas has the rest it means I have a fraction of the pizza.

One half is bigger than one tenth because when splitting in 10 each portion is smaller than the half.

1/5 is bigger because 1/5 is 0.5

1/10 is 0.1

A numerical quantity that is not a whole number.
