## How do you introduce fractions in first grade?

Guide your students by having them cut one of their circles in half. Talk about how each of the 2 shares is a half and together they’re called halves. Then have them cut their other circle into half.. and then half again. Let them know these are called fourths because there are four equal parts.

### What is the conceptual understanding of fractions?

fractions. The idea that the smaller the denominator, the smaller the piece or part of the set, or the larger the denominator, the larger the piece or part of the set, is based on the comparison that in whole numbers, the smaller a number, the less it is, or the larger a number, the more it is.

**What are some examples of fractions in everyday life?**

In real life, we will many examples of fractions, such as: If a pizza is divided into two equal parts, then each part is equal to half of the whole pizza. If we divide a slice of watermelon into three equal parts then each part is equal 1/3rd of the whole.

## How do you conceptually teach multiplying fractions?

The Simple Way To Multiply Fractions

- Multiply the denominators (bottom numbers)
- If needed, simplify or reduce the fraction.

**What tools can be used to teach a lesson on fractions?**

Teach Equivalent Fractions with High Student Engagement

- Tool #2: Fraction Circles.
- Equivalent Fractions Tool #3: Dominoes.
- Tool #4: Play Dough.

### How do you teach fractions in primary school?

Start with concrete items, like food or counters – you can use pasta pieces or dried beans in place of counters – then draw them as pictures. Once you’ve got this down, you can move onto using rational numbers (the fancy name for fractions) to represent them.

**How do you conceptually divide fractions by whole numbers?**

The rule is, to divide a fraction by a whole number, multiply the given fraction by the reciprocal of whole numbers. Example: Find 1⁄4÷3. The reciprocal of 3 is 1⁄3. Example: If 5 out of 12 pieces of an apple pie were shared among 3 people, what fraction of apple pie does each person gets?

## Why is the concept of equivalent fractions important?

Equivalent fractions are the same size, even though they have a different number of pieces. This gives students the opportunity to build concrete evidence of fraction equivalency before we move on to more abstract problems.

**What is equivalent fraction with example for kids?**

Equivalent fractions are two or more fractions that are all equal even though they different numerators and denominators. For example the fraction 1/2 is equivalent to (or the same as) 25/50 or 500/1000.

### What is the first concept in fractions to teach?

SO I think it is really important to build those fraction foundations so your students don’t end up staring at fractions the way I did! I think the first concept in fractions to teach is EQUAL PARTS, or EQUAL SHARES. See those funky shapes with unequal parts on the right?? We call those “nutty shapes”!

**How can I introduce fractions to my first grader?**

Introduce students to fractions by having them divide the shapes into equal parts and then color one half. Help your first grader get a handle on the fraction one-half with this printable math worksheet.

## What are fraction worksheets?

One of the types of worksheets I made were these sheets that focus on a specific type of fraction (cut into halves, thirds, fourths, or eighths). I love these because they practice several skills at once but for each type of fraction so it’s not too confusing or overwhelming.

**How do you Celebrate when your child masters the concept of fractions?**

Once your child has mastered the concept of fractions, this lesson and activity are a great way to celebrate while tying art and math into one lesson on fractions.
