The Best Way to Teach Fractions so Students Will Understand Them
Fractions are confusing for a lot of peopleeven adults! However, they are vitally important for understanding some advanced mathematical concepts. Often, fractions are not taught effectively, so students do not learn about them in a way that sticks. EdHelper's fractions worksheets will help your students understand fractions better.
What is a fraction? Simply, a fraction is used to indicate a part of a whole.The top number is called the numerator, and the bottom number is called the denominator. For example, in the fraction onehalf, 1 is the numerator, 2 is the denominator. When students are beginning to learn fractions, visualizations can be helpful.
Take a cake, for example. The denominator (bottom number in a fraction) tells how many slices to cut the cake into, and the numerator (top number) tells how many slices (or what fraction) you can take. Pro tip: try this with an actual cake, and watch your students become very interested in learning fractions.
If you start with representational models, like the cake example above, students will have a better understanding of fraction math than if you jump straight into computation.
