Activity Overview


Encourage students to talk about fractions and what they mean. Mathematics is not all about numbers and answers, but also understanding and reasoning. Teacher-led question and answer sessions are very helpful, but it is also very beneficial for building strong foundations if teachers, and eventually students, lead discussions on mathematical concepts. Fractions can be an excellent starting point for such conversations. Pose a question to the class, such as the Jack and Jill arguments in the example, for the class to ponder on their own and share, or discuss in small groups.


Better yet, have the students create the discussion prompts as a visual storyboard or comic.
