Interactive Math Lesson - Fractions of Shapes

Students become familiar with the fractions of shapes in this third grade-level interactive math practice activity. Use this engaging math game with your class to help them gain a greater understanding of fractions as numbers. Students will answer fill-in-the-blank questions and multiple-choice questions to determine whether the given shape is divided into equal parts, what fraction of the shape is shaded, and which number represents the numerator or denominator. Upon completion of this interactive math lesson, students will have a better understanding of fractions.

Your class will be asked a variety of questions in this math lesson about the fractions of shapes. Here are some examples: "How many parts is this shape divided into?" "What fraction of the shape is not shaded?" and "What is the numerator in the fraction?" Each question is accompanied by a picture that shows the fraction of a given shape.

Several features in this third-grade math lesson help students make the most of their fraction practice time. If students need a little extra help answering a question, they can click on the "Hint" button to see a helpful pictorial or written clue. If they answer a question incorrectly, a detailed explanation page will appear to show them how to obtain the correct answer. This gives students a chance to learn from mistakes. A progress-tracker in the upper-right corner of the practice screen shows students how many questions they have answered out of the total in the lesson. A score-tracker beneath the progress-tracker lets students know how they are doing in the lesson. Finally, a speaker icon indicates the read-aloud feature, which is a great option for ESL/ELL students and for students who are auditory learners.
