Fractions are difficult for young students. They look at 1/2 and are told that it is bigger than 1/3 when 3 is bigger than 2!
In this unit the student uses fraction words to name parts of whole objects or sets of objects. The student is expected to:
- name fractional parts of a whole object
- name fractional parts of a set of objects
If you ask young children to name their favorite foods one of the top ones chosen would be pizza.
Use these pizza math suggestions to provide some fun filled activities in your classroom.
