Fractions is an area that a lot of kids find hard to understand. One of the problems with fractions is that they have different meanings depending on the context.

For example, you can eat half an apple or cut an orange into fourths. But you can also put the number one-half on a number line, measure a line 3 1/2 cm long, or find a fourth of 24.

Once the concept of fractions as numbers and fractions as parts of a whole has been understood, your child will be well on their way to developing a sound understanding of fractions.

What is a fraction?

A fraction is a number which contains parts of a whole.

In the example below, the fraction shaded is ^{2}/_{5} because 2 parts out of 5 are shaded.

The parts have to be equal in size!

Fractions can be smaller than or larger than one (one whole).

In the example below, there is ^{4}/_{3} shaded (or 1^{1}/_{3}).
