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). Equivalent Fractions are equal in value. They represent the same amount of the whole.

The concept of fractions and decimals will enable the pupils understand and appreciate in everyday life.
