Explore fractions visually through segmented shapes. Scholars examine sets of shapes and shade in the given fraction. Each shape is divided into the same number of segments as the denominator of the desired fraction, so beginners aren't asked to calculate an equivalent fraction. They shade in 4/5, 8/10, 4/10, 8/10, 3/10, 7/10, 6/10, and 9/10 of these shapes. Demonstrate this for kinesthetic learners by bringing 5 volunteers in front of the class. How would we get 4/5 of this group? 3/5?
