What is a fraction?


Remember, when you are splitting something into halves, quarters or thirds, each part needs to be equal. If you are finding a fraction of a shape, the number at the bottom of the fraction tells you how many pieces it is cut into, and the number on the top tells you how many pieces of the shape are shaded: see image below.
Picture 1

Complete the worksheet attached and write what fraction of the shape has been shaded. Extension: Look at how much of the piece of food has been eaten. Write the fraction. How much is left?
