Represent and interpret fractions, including fractions greater than one, in the form of mn as the result of adding the unit fraction 1n to itself times.


Examples


begin mathsize 12px style 9 over 8 end style can be represented as begin mathsize 12px style 1 over 8 plus 1 over 8 plus 1 over 8 plus 1 over 8 plus 1 over 8 plus 1 over 8 plus 1 over 8 plus 1 over 8 plus 1 over 8 end style.

Name Description
Clipart ETC Fractions

Illustrations that can be used for teaching and demonstrating fractions. Fractional representations are modeled in wedges of circles ("pieces of pie") and parts of polygons. There are also clipart images of numerical fractions, both proper and improper, from halves to twelfths. Fraction charts and fraction strips found in this collection can be used as manipulatives and are ready to print for classroom use.
