4) April 4

I love the way the lecturer explained fractions in such simple term. The numerator respresents the numbers of something while the denominator is a respresentation of something with a different name, like the way we read 4 sweets or 2 apples.

Fraction is a just a convention of language. Fractions are parts of a whole. ( e.g. 1 + 1  = 1 )
Today I learn to read fraction differently –                                                                    2    2
2  is read as 2 thirds ,  (instead of saying  two over three.)

3   as 3 fourths  ( instead of  three over quarter)
The Mr R's math video on fractions is a great way to learn through songs.


@Arthmetic can be fun
