Storyboard Text

  • Hey George! Have you had math class today yet? We went over fractions and it really reminds me of this football field. 
  • Yeah I did but I didn't really understand.. can you help me?
  • You see, the field is made of 100 yards. It is split into increments of 10 yards! So one field is the whole or 10/10!
  • That makes sense! So if you ran from the 10 yard line to the 20 yard line, you ran 1/10 of the field right? 
  • Exactly! If I run from the 10 yard line to the 30 yard line, then what fraction would it be?
  • So if I would be running 20 yards.. and we know that 100 yards is the whole.. would it be 2/10ths of the field? 
  • Yes, George! What if I ran from one end zone to the 50 yard line? 
  • If you ran from the end zone to the 50 yard line.. that would be 50 yards out of 100 yards! But I can also simplify that! Because 50/100 is also one half of the field! So as a fraction it is also 1/2!
  • You got it! Can we simplify every fraction?
  • Well.. some fractions will already be in their lowest terms! You see, the fraction 3/5 would already be in it's lowest terms. The numerator and denominator cannot are not divisible by any of the same numbers!
  • What does it mean for something to be "divisible"?
  • It means that the number can be divided by a number without creating a remainder!
