Interactive Math Lesson - Fractions with Equal Parts

Let's practice fractions with equal parts! This interactive math practice activity from I Know It is ideal for your first grade students. In this elementary math lesson, students will decide whether the shapes are divided into equal parts. This will help them recognize fractions with equal parts versus fractions without equal parts.

Here are some examples of questions that may be asked of your students in this interactive first grade math lesson: "What is this shape divided into?" The students must choose from "halves" or "thirds". "Which shape is divided into equal parts?" Students will choose the correct shape. And "Drag the squares into the chart." Students must sort the squares according to whether they have equal parts.

In this first grade-level fractions lesson, several lesson features will help students make the most out of their math practice time. If they get stuck on a question, a “Hint” button in the lower-left corner of the practice screen will show them a relevant pictorial and/or written clue. If students prefer to have the question read aloud to them, they can click the speaker icon in the upper-left corner of the screen. (This is a great option for ESL/ELL students, or students who excel at auditory learning!) If students answer a math question incorrectly, a detailed explanation page will show them the correct answer, as well as how to obtain it. Students move through the lesson having learned from their mistakes.
