Fractions of shapes
We compared the parts to check they were equal.
We taught others today. We're great mathematicians
It was hard to compare them side by side.
Look. I have made halves.
Me too! They're equal.
I have to find the middle. Yes this is the middle.
To find half I need to look on each side.
I can compare the sizes using marks on my ruler.
I'm going to try again to make them equal.
I did it!
I've finally got it. I've made thirds.
What shall I try next?
I've made equal parts but didn't use it up. Oops.
They were tricky. Are they equal? Yes I think so.
Halves, thirds, quarters...what next...fifths.
I'm teaching others because I'm a mathematician!
That was hard. I made three parts.
How can we write down what we have made?
I have one third and there are 2 thirds left.
That is better. Now it's equal.
I need to turn some pieces over.
Look I can prove they are equal.
Let's try writing what we have made using symbols.
The parts are equal.
Each piece has the same name.
