We kicked off our fraction unit with an exercise in equal sharing. If you have three cookies and two kids, how many cookies will each kid get? Check out all the ways we showed one and a half in the chart. These are all equivalent fractions. These problems help give us a good understanding of denominator and numerator and how the parts of a fraction are related. You can try these exercises at home at the dinner table or in the car driving to hockey. If you have three friends over for a sleepover and five cupcakes for dessert, how many cupcakes will each friend get?
