In Math Workshop, we have been been studying area models of fractions. Through homework, we have also been reviewing fraction concept using linear models (number lines) and set models (groups of objects). All of these models are important in helping to develop conceptual understanding of fractions.
The links below are helpful in reviewing some of the "big ideas" we have been studying in class. Use them to review and clarify your understanding of fractions. :-)
What are fractions?
How can you make and identify equivalent fractions?
How do you find the "Greatest Common Factor" to put a fraction in lowest terms?
