# Fractions As Part Of A Whole Math Games

In this series of games, your students will learn to understand a fraction 1/b as the quantity formed by 1 part when a whole is partitioned into b equal parts. The Fractions As Part Of A Whole learning objective — based on CCSS and state standards — delivers improved student engagement and academic performance in your classroom, as demonstrated by research. This learning objective directly references 3.NF.A.1 as written in the common core national math standards.

## Concepts Covered

Must specify the Whole when asking for a numerical interpretation of a model. A model split into 2 equal parts with a shaded portion can be misinterpreted if the whole is not specified.  Starts with unit fractions or fractions with a numerator of 1, which are formed by partitioning a whole into equal parts and taking one part. e.g. If a whole is partitioned into 3 equal parts then each part is 1/3.

Denominator denotes the size of the parts when a Whole is split into equal parts, found under the fraction bar in a fraction. The numerator denotes the number of parts of the whole that are indicated, found on top of the fraction bar in a fraction. Move from the understanding of “equal parts” to “parts with equal measurements”. Unit fractions are to be understood to be the basic building block of all fractions.
