Fractions (1/2, 1/3 and 1/4)
Song For Teaching Math - Lyrics and Sound Clip
This song is available on Kathleen Wiley's Math: Sing Your Way to Easy Learning
A fraction is a tiny part of something
A fraction is the tiny part you get
A fraction is one number on another
With a line between them separating them!
The numerator is the tiny number
It's on the top, and it's the part you get
And on the bottom's the denominator
It's the biggest number in this problem yet.
So take a whole ..... divide it into pieces
And make sure all the pieces are the same
Then take one out... and now you've got a fraction
And you're now prepared to play the fraction game...
And so one one half...means you have one of two parts..
And so one third...means you get one of three...
As the denominator grows the part shrinks..
Leaving smaller pieces then for you and me.....
