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.
On this webpage, you will find some helpful fraction information, and printable resource cards.
On each information card, you will find a complete sheet all about a given fraction, including examples of shapes with the given fraction shaded, and showing where the fraction sits on a number line.
This resource page cover tenths.
