Math homework: We are continuing with fractions this week. At the end of last week, we explored the concept of a fraction of a set.

Ex:  ¼ of 12

Step 1: count total items in set (12)

Step 2: what is 12 divided by 4.

12 / 4 = 3

Step 3: we need to devide the items/set into four equal groups of three.

Step 4: Color one of those 4 groups and count the items.

¼ of 12 = 3

See attached document and homework help video for any questions.

Math homework: Last week we started a new unit on fractions. This is a new topic for grade 4 and a review for grade 5.  This week’s worksheet is a mix of fractions with common denominators and common numerators.

When the denominators are the same, you compare the numerator (top number). The larger the numerators the larger the fraction.

When the numerators are the same, you compare the denominators (bottom number). The smaller the numerator, the larger the fraction.

See attached document for help.
