Fractions of Shapes

This Fractions of Shapes worksheet also includes:

Modelling fractions through shapes is a great way to demonstrate this concept to beginners. Learners examine 12 shapes, each divided into an even number of equal segments (up to 16 parts). They shade in half of each shape by shading half of the segments. Next, scholars do the same with six more shapes, but this time they shade in one third of each. For beginners, ask them how they determined how many segments to color in. This could be an excellent way to introduce denominators and numerators.
