Learning In - tension: We are learning to find a fraction of a set or number
In my class, we learnt about fractions of a set. Our teacher thought that it was a good idea to use m and m's to help us a little bit when it comes to fractions. The photo below shows what 1/5 of 5 is. Which is 3. So there are 5 groups with 3 m and m's in it.
In this photo or fraction there are 15 m and m's altogether. There are only 4 green m and m's so the fraction of this number would be 4/15
In this photo we had to find out what 1/16 of 16 is. Which is 1, so that means each m and m would be by itself and alone
