**Fractions**

*Fractions are parts of a whole. If an amount is divided into equal parts of fair shares, we can understand and name fractions.

*The top number in a fraction is called a numerator. The bottom number in a fraction is called a denominator.

*The top number in a fraction is called a numerator. The bottom number in a fraction is called a denominator.

## *Fractions that have the same numerator and denominator always equal 1 whole. The examples below all equal 1 whole because the numerator and denominator are the same.

**Equivalent Fractions **

Equivalent Fractions describe the same portion of a whole divided in different ways.

For example: half a piece of paper can be represented as 1/2, 2/4, 3/6, 4/8, 5/10.......

In other words, Equivalent Fractions have the same value, even though they may look different!
