I am learning to solve fraction using halving and doubling at level 2

1. Tipene has 16 playstation games.  He gives half of them to his brother. games.  How many games did he give to his brother?
8 + 8 = 16  OR 16 SHARE INTO 2 PARTS = 8
½ OF 16 IS 8

2.  Jodi buys 24K-bars. She gives a quarter (1/4) to his brother.  How many did she give to her brother.

she give his brother 6 bars which equal 1 quarter of 24 because 6 is one quarter of 24.  
24 is shared into 4 equal groups.  How many do you get?

3.  Ihipera has 15 picture books. She gives a third (1/3) of them away to a friend.  How many picture books did she give away?
she gave away 5 books because I know that a third of 15 equal 5 and I use reversibility  
3 x 5 = 15

15 is shared into 3 equal groups.  How many in each.

Sefesi I can see that you are not sure of fraction.  We will do more of it next term.  POST
