In this lesson, we will learn:

  • How to use fractions to talk about sets of objects
  • How to use division and multiplication to solve for fraction of a set

Notes:

  • We can use fractions to talk about sets of objects. We can use images or just simplify to a simple shape like a circle.
    • Ex. If Austin has 8 jellybeans and he wants to give 14\large \frac{1}{4} to her, how many jellybeans will he give?
Fractions of a Set
    • By making 4 equal groups and then giving just 1 of those groups, we realize that there is 2 in each group, so he gave his sister 2 jellybeans.
  • We can use division and multiplication to find the fraction of a set
    • Ex. After giving his sister jellybeans, Austin has 34\large \frac{3}{4} of his 8 jellybeans left.
Fractions of a Set
      • Step 1: divide 8 into 4 equal groups  ⟶ \, \longrightarrow \, 8 ÷ 4 = 2
      • Step 2: take the result and multiply by 3 groups  ⟶ \, \longrightarrow \, 2 × 3 = 6
  • The formula for a fraction of a set:
    • following the format: Fractions of a Set
    • divide the denominator and multiply the numerator
