At the end of this lesson, students will be able to read, write, and identify fractions of a set and explain verbally and in writing their thought process in doing so.
This lesson shows how to interpret a fraction as part of a set of objects. The whole or denominator is the total number of objects in the set. The numerator specifies the parts or individual objects in the set. An extension of this lesson includes finding a fraction of a set to a set of objects divided into equal subsets.
