# Identify fractional parts of a group

## Learn or teach by designing your own identify fractions of groups of objects.

# INSTRUCTIONS

Make Fractions of a Group Designer uses square and round cookies to demonstrate a fractional part of a group of objects. The following illustration was made from this program:

To arrive at the fraction simply enter 7 for the number of square cookies and 9 for the total number of cookies.

The picture will show that 7 of the 9 cookies are square cookies.

All fractions must be less than or equal to one. The denominator must be 20 or less.

The <EXPLAIN> checkbox checked will show how the fraction of square cookies is calculated. Uncheck <EXPLAIN> to hide the explanation, allowing the teacher or learner to demonstrate how to write the fractions.

With <SHOW INPUT> unchecked, the numerator and denominator input boxes will act the same as password input boxes so learners will not see the numbers you input.

Suggestions:

Demonstrate numerator with ^{3}⁄_{9} and then ^{4}⁄_{9}. Continue with increasing the numerator until you arrive at ^{9}⁄_{9}. This will make all
cookies square cookies.
