Basic Fractions Model
Here are the basic models. You can also check out the other
variations of the fractions model
.
To show half, draw 2 equal boxes to represent the total number of equal parts and shade 1 part out of the 2 equal parts. Similarly, to show onethird, draw 3 equal boxes to represent the total number of equal parts and shade 1 part out of the 3 equal parts. To show threequarters, draw 4 equal boxes to represent the total number of equal parts and shade 3 parts out of the 4 equal parts.
We can also assign a numerical value to a fractional part/fractional parts of the model. E.g. Onethird of a number is 7.
E.g. Threequarter of a number is 18.
