Q 1. I would say pretend you have pizza made of 6 pieecs, and 1 piece is 1/6 . To teach them I would say if you ate 1 piece of the pizza, you ate 1/6 so if you ate 2 peices how many would have you eaten? Q 2.I think chance plays partially in your life, sometimes but not always you can change its outcome by increasing or decreasing the probability of something happening. One example to support that is when you are playing a game of snakes and ladders and you can’t change the outcome of rolling a die. Another example is when you are trying to get your name picked in a raffle but you can change the outcome by putting in more tickets. Finally, one last example is that it is chance that the store has your favorite ice cream in stock but you can change the outcome by requesting the ice cream to be shipped in.Q 3.It is important to know the whole because the fraction is part of a whole. An example to support this is if you have a fraction like 2/6 you don’t know what 2 is part of.Q 4.Those words are all connected becuase they all represent part of a whole. An example to prove this is if you have a fraction like 1/2 you can convert it to decimal form as 0.5 or you can convert it to percentage form as 50%.
