Fraction Fun!

Mrs. Yollis' class earned a pizza party.

It was a perfect time to think about eating fractions.

We had four whole pizzas!

The pizzas were sliced into twelfths.

That meant we had many twelfths!

To be exact, we had forty-eight twelfths.

Some students chewed one twelfth.

Other students devoured two twelfths.

Two twelfths can be simplified using factors.

Here see for yourself!


If you don't remember what factors are or you'd like to practice your division facts...

Venn Factors is a fun way to review factors.
