**Mathematics 8 Support**Fraction Meanings**Part of a Whole**the result when the wholeor unit is partitioned into equal-sized parts**Part of a Whole**Sharing tasks promote developmental understanding for part of a whole. The parts into which the whole is divided are equal but do not need to be identical. Fraction parts do not have to be adjacent.**Parts of a Set**the result when a group or a collection of things is partitioned**Parts of a Set**The members of the set do not have to be identical. Containing or enclosing the set helps students see the set as one unit.**Part of a Measure**involves associating marks on measuring devices, such as rulers, with fraction names**Part of a Measure**This is the most abstract of the first three meanings but the most useful for the teaching of computational skills.**Can be Used to Name a Ratio**a comparison between two quantities that may or may not involve different units**Can be Used to Name a Ratio**A ratio is a numerical relationship A fraction used to name a ratio may or may not involve wholes, groups or the name for a point (measure). It involves making a comparison.**An Indicated Division**the symbolic form of a fraction is seen as the quotient of 2 integers with the fraction bar as a signal to divide**Can be Used as an Operator**to operate on a unit (e.g. of 12)**Can be Used as an Operator**A misconception that often occurs is that students think that multiplication “always makes bigger” and division “always makes smaller”.
