Fractions are all around us! A fraction represents a part of a whole. We use fractions every time we have a slice of pizza or a piece of cake! Depending on how many slices our pizza is made of, our fractions change.
The top number in a fraction is called the numerator. The NUMERATOR represents how many parts we have. The bottom number in a fraction is called the denominator. The DENOMINATOR is the number of equal parts the whole is divided into.
These videos & reference notes have been taken directly from our UnLock Math Foundations course that we developed to quickly fill in gaps and catch students up. We get students ready for Pre-Algebra no matter what grade level they are starting from.
We’ve had students who were significantly behind grade level, grades 2-3, successfully finish Foundations in 6 months and move into Pre-Algebra, covering 5 grade levels in one year.
