Write Fractions: Using Shapes (1)

Use knowledge of shapes to learn about writing fractions with a numerator of one. Walk through breaking up rectangular and circular objects into sections, shading in a specific section, and then writing the fraction as a number. As the second of eight videos on understanding fractions, this is a great way for learners to apply prior understandings to a new concept.
