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


  1. Kia ora Telesia,

    You have explained finding a fraction of a set really well - great job! What is 4/5 of 15?

  2. Kia Ora Miss Stone,

    The answer of your question would be 12 because 15 divided by 5 = 3 and then 3 x 4 = 12. Thank You for commenting! :)


  3. Heyy Sia it's seem like you are learning a lot in maths. I think you are one talented person.

    Good work Sia 😜 😜
