## UNDERSTANDING FRACTIONS

In this module, you can study what fractions are and some words associated with fractions.

## Did you know?

Fractions can be larger than 1.

The fraction "3/4" can mean "3 out of 4 equal parts of a whole".  It can also mean "3 divided by 4".

If a circle is divided into 4 equal parts where one part is shaded and three parts are not shaded, then the shaded part is 1/4.
