Simplifying fractions has been one of the major concern for most children. But, worry not! There is an easy explanation to it and we have it right here.
The last set of worksheets deals with commonly encountered fractions, including percentage values. These are values that students should be able to site reduce when they encounter them. Mastering these reducing problems will make many other fraction problems go much faster.
Here’s hoping that now simplifying fractions for you would be easy and not so ‘trick-y’. Happy Fractions!
Once students have a basic familiarity with fractions, the next step is to understand how to compare fractions. Sometimes the concept of denominators takes a little time to grasp. Often students will confuse a larger denominator with a larger value for the fraction, when in reality the numerator, not the denominator, expressed the actual value being represented. The size of the numerator relative to the denominator is what ultimately describes the actual value of the fraction.
