Day 8 Crew! Happy Thursday! Today we are recapping how we can represent fractions using a bar model.
Remember a bar model is a pictorial diagrams showing both the numerator and denominator as equal parts. The Denominator is the number of equal parts in total (Do not forget the denominator does not change). The numerator is the number of equal parts shaded in.
Do not forget to SIMPLIFY if possible for some answers. For example, 25/45 you do not need to do a bar model of 45 boxes! you can simplify 25/45 to 5/9 because 5 goes into both 25 and 45, so a bar model of 5/9 is perfect!
Answer all the questions below, draw the bar models and identify each fraction.
