## What is a picture fraction?

One way to represent a fraction visually is **to use a linear model. A linear model uses a number line to show the size of a fraction. In a linear model, the total length of a line is divided into equally spaced intervals. A fraction can then be shown by another line that only covers part of the total length.**

## What are visual fractions?

Fraction art is **a fun way for students to practice fractions as part of a whole. For this activity, students use the Fraction Art activity page (freebie below) and create their own design by using multiple colors.**

## What is fraction in art?

**Examples**

- Examples of Proper Fractions: 2/3, 2/4, 2/5, 1/2. 4/7, 7/9, etc. ( Numerator x26lt; Denominator)
- Examples of Improper Fractions: 3/2, 4/2, 5/2, 7/4, 9/7, 8/5, etc. ( Numerator x26gt; Denominator)
- Examples of Mixed Fractions: etc. ( Combination of whole numbers, proper and improper fractions)

## How can we visually represent a fraction?

One way to represent a fraction visually is **to use a linear model. A linear model uses a number line to show the size of a fraction. In a linear model, the total length of a line is divided into equally spaced intervals. A fraction can then be shown by another line that only covers part of the total length.**

## How do you do fraction art?

Decimals can be written in fraction form. To convert a decimal to a fraction, **place the decimal number over its place value. For example, in 0.6, the six is in the tenths place, so we place 6 over 10 to create the equivalent fraction, 6/10.**

## What does visual fraction mean?

**a fraction or fractions**.

## How do you teach visual fractions?

**Fraction Strips/Circles** Fraction strips and/or circles are a wonderful visual aid for students to see fractional parts of a whole as well as equivalent fractions. Students get to manipulate the fraction strips or circles so they can have a hands-on experience with numerators, denominators, and equivalent fractions.

## What do we use in visualizing fractions?

1 and Example 4.1. 2, we used **circles and rectangles to model fractions. Fractions can also be modeled as manipulatives called fraction tiles, as shown in Figure 4.1.**

## How do you explain a fraction?

A fraction simply tells us how many parts of a whole we have. You can recognize a fraction **by the slash that is written between the two numbers. We have a top number, the numerator, and a bottom number, the denominator. For example, 1/2 is a fraction.**
