1 6- FRACTIONS sics MATH 0 F Frctions rise to express PART of UNIT Wht prt of n HOUR is thirty minutes? Fifteen minutes? tw elve minutes? (The UNIT here is HOUR.) Wht frction of the children re hppy? (The UNIT here is the entire GROUP or set of children.) In this exmple, w e my lso perceive the frction s rtio. One person might sy hlf or four-eighths the children re hppy. Another might sy four (re hppy), of eight ltogether, or one of every two. It s miles to Nn s house. We hve driven 9 miles. Wht prt of the drive hve we covered? (The UNIT here is the distnce to Nn s house.) We compre 9 to. 4 Four children must divide three pies mong them. How much of PIE does ech one get? (The UNIT here is PIE.) Most generlly, frction is used to express prt of w hole. The denomintor tells us into how mny equl prts the whole ws divided. The numertor tells us how mny of those prts w e hve. numertor ) 4 denomintor Definition: The set of rtionl numers, denoted Q, is {/ Z nd Z nd 0}. The numertor of / is defined to e, the denomintor of / is. The concept of equivlent frctions is encoded in the c FRACTION STRIPS: FUNDAMENTAL LAW OF FRACTIONS: if c 0, ) )) c In grde school this is clled RENAMING frctions. For exmple, / ( 4)/( 4) 4/, illustrted t right: / is the simplest or reduced form of the frction. A rtionl frction is sid to e in SIM PLEST or reduced form w hen the numertor nd denomintor re reltively prime. (Specil cse: if the denomintor is, we usully omit 4 )) )) )) writing the denomintor.) 4 After w e define multipliction! Reduce: COMPARING FRACTIONS: Are nd 4 equivlent? nd? 7 nd 40? 0 nd 4? How we know tht / nd c/d re equivlent: Reduce, express with common denomintor. Wht out when they re NOT equivlent? How do we put them in order? () use common denomintor (then compre numertors) () compre to esily recognized frctions () if the numertors re the sme, compre denomintors. (Lrger denomintor smller frction!) (Would you rther hve ½ or c of \$million?)

2 6-A More Frction Bsics MATH 0 f Illustrting frctions w ith re models. To illustrte one-hlf, it is importnt tht the UNIT e divided into two EQUAL prts. These re good illustrtions of one-hlf: These re not: In different discussions of frctions the unit my vry, ut one common unit should e used throughout prticulr discussion. Digrms used to illustrte ddition, sutrction, multipliction nd division, s w ell s frction equivlence nd comprison should follow suit. For instnce, to show equivlence, use ONE unit nd sudivide: use: do NOT use: Rectngles ren t glmorous, ut they re esy to divide tw o w ys! To model the ddition of ½ + ½ ½ + ¼ ½ + ¼ ½ + do not use: do not use: use: use: + Not sme unit! NSU! Sme unit! Mesurement models re very similr to re models, ut re not necessrily -dimensionl. Set models re rrely used for comprisons or illustrting rithmetic opertions. (Usully find of N ) Mny frctions do not exist in W, the set of w hole numers. They elong to the set of rtionl numers, w hich includes the w hole numers, nd ll these new rtios. To sve spce, w e w ill refer to the set of frctions s Q. Getting redy for ddition & sutrction of frctions: We strt w ith common denomintors: ) + ) ) ) ) + ) ) + ) ) + ) 4 4 We step up to denomintors tht re comptile, s one divides the other: ) + ) ) ) ) ) Until w e re redy for the generl cse: ) + ) ) ) ) + ) Then we will go eyond tht, to: 4 ) + ) ) ) ) ) ) + )

The preferred method is to write equivlent frctions using the lest common denomintor, D (LCD )... nd then ppel to the intuitively cler " /D + /D ( + )/D". In short, rewrite the frctions with the LCD, then dd numertors. (Note the LCD is the ctully the Lest Common Multiple of the denomintors.)
