Introduction
I hope you are ready to learn!!!
This course will take you through different ways to use fractions with a number line. We will begin with a small review on what a fraction is as well a number line separately before putting them to work together. Navigate through this course in the order provided, and be sure to complete each section 100% before moving on. Each section will give an explanation on what you will be learning as well as examples. You will then get a chance to try it all out on your own before moving onto the Checkpoint, or short quiz. Once passing, you may then move onto the next section. At any time, feel free to use the menu bar on the left hand side of the screen to go back to any part where you feel you need more review. Take your time through the course, but have fun as well!

What is a Fraction?
To start, we are going to review what a fraction means, and the different parts of one!

Terms to know
The top of a fraction is called the numerator (nuumerater). This shows the amount of parts the fraction has. The example above shows there are 3 parts.
The bottom of a fraction is the denominator (deenominater). This shows the whole, or how many equal parts a shape has. The picture above shows a denominator of 4.

How Fractions are Written
You will see this all throughout the course. In order to say the name of the fraction, we use what is on the denominator. The first fraction shown above is one half. The second is one third, and the final is one fourth.
Example of a Fraction
The shaded picture above is an example of a shaded fraction. The circle is partitioned (split up into its equal groups) into six equal parts, or sixths. Out of the six, four pieces are shaded in, or four parts. Our parts over our whole makes this fraction foursixths, written as 4/6.
