What are fractions?

To begin our learning of fractions, we first needed to come up with a definition of what a fraction is.

We also learnt that it is also important to understand what is NOT a fraction so that we do not become confused and so that our definition of a fraction is stronger.

This is what we decided:

1. Fractions are when an object, group of objects or a number is split up into equal pieces or group.

2. Non-fractions are when an object, group of objects or a number is split into pieces or groups that are NOT equal.
