The final fraction subject an elementary student must master is convertion. To convert fraction into percentage, all you need to do is multiply the fraction by 100 and add a percent symbol behind your final answer. To convert fraction into decimals, you just need to divide the numerator with the denominator. Try spend a few minutes looking at the examples above to get better understanding of the concept.
Аfter additions and substractions, the next thing you should learn is multiplications and divisions. Multiplications are quite simple, because you just need to multiply a numerator with another numerator, and the denominator with another denominator. Then you get the results. For divisions, there is one small trick. Instead of dividing it straight forward, you need to flip the numerator and denominator of the second term. In other words, multiply the numerator of the first term with the denominator of the second term, and multiply the denominator of the first term with the numerator of the second term. If you are still confused, it might be a good idea to take a look at the illustrations above.
The next part you should learn is adding and subtracting fractions. The key to adding and subtracting fraction is finding the smallest common denominator for all fractions. Then you should divide the smallest common denominator with the original denominator, and then multiply the original numerator and denominator with the result of the division. After finding the final result, don't forget to simplify it!
After mastering the values of fractions, next phase should be simplifying it. In order to simplify it, you must find out the biggest shared factors of both the numerator and the denominator. After that, you will just have to divide the numerator and the denominator by the biggest shared factor you have found. Please take a look at the equations above for the details.
The first every student needs to know about fraction is the value of the fraction. The simple way to present this is through circular chart or pizzas! For example, a half of the pizza is the equal to 1/2 or 50% of the pizza, and 1 slice out of 4 slices of a pizza is equal to a quarter or 1/4 or 25% and so on
