In the sixth video of this series, pupils look at visual models as they learn to count up fractions to make a whole. Students then apply this new understanding with the story problem presented in the Guided Practice video. If available, provide learners with fraction manipulatives to reinforce the idea that fractions can be put together to make wholes.
