Lesson Excerpt

Have you ever eaten a part of something and not been able to finish it completely? Some foods like pie and pizza are already broken into parts which you can eat. Other foods, you may eat until you are full and have something left over. If you have ever wondered how much food was left then you've probably measured the amount in fractions.

A fraction is a math term which means that something is broken into parts of a whole.

A pie is a circle that is broken into pieces so it can be shared. Any shape or object can be broken into fractions!

A fraction is made up of two main parts which are separated by a line. The top part (the number on top) is called the numerator. The bottom part (the number on the bottom) is called the denominator.

In this fraction: 4
5

Four is the numerator and five is the denominator.
