Create three rectangles that are each 12 pegs wide and 2 pegs high. Partition one rectangle into two equal parts (called halves), another into three equal parts (called thirds), and another into four equal parts (called fourths). Notice that parts have the same size within a whole, but different sizes between wholes. The greater the number of equal parts in a whole, the smaller the size of the parts. Try to also divide a circle into halves, thirds, and fourths.
Identifying Unit Fractions (Halves, Thirds, and Fourths) using the Brainingcamp Geoboard virtual manipulative.
Brainingcamp virtual manipulatives can be used anywhere with no setup, cleanup, or lost parts. They are highly effective at engaging today’s digital learners and helping them bringing abstract math concepts to life.
Brainingcamp produces virtual manipulatives for iPads, Chromebooks, PCs, and Macs.
