RATIONALE

Fractions really are everywhere!  Every time we cut an apple, an orange, or any kind of fruit, we are taking a piece of the whole. We can represent those pieces as fractions.  Fractions are part of a whole. That’s part of something bigger. Fractions have two numbers, a numerator (the part) and a denominator (the whole).

The concept of fractions will enable the pupils understand and appreciate its importance as part of life.
