Name: Fraction Flip Chart1 
Each
set contains
Flip chart with 10 charts
with each chart having different fractions 1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8,
1/3, 1/6, 1/12, 1/5, 1/10, 1/100.
This game is used to
demonstrate fraction relationships with unique set of laminated
flip charts. 
This game that we have
here is called fraction flip chart. The first chart here is 1.
This is one complete chart. Now we will divide this chart into
two equal parts. So what we get is two parts of the same chart
which are of equal size. So this is one half and this is another
half. The denominator of this fraction 1/2 indicates the number
of parts made of the original chart. Now we will divide this
complete chart into 4 parts. So what we get is 4 equal parts of
the same chart. This is one 1/2 th, this is another 1/4 th, this
is third 1/4 th and this is the fourth 1/4 th part. You can see
that the earlier 1/2 is actually formed of two equal parts of
1/4th
each. So 1/4 is twice 1/4th or 1/4th is half of 1/2. The denominator
of this fraction 1/4 indicates the number of parts made of the
original chart. Now we will divide the chart further into eight
equal parts. So what we have now is 8 equal parts each
represented by 1/8. So this is one 1/8, this is second 1/8, this
is third 1/8 and so on…You can see that the earlier 1/4 part is
actually formed of two 1/8 parts. So 1/4th is twice 1/8th or
1/8th is half of 1/4th. 
In the similar fashion the
second set of 1/3rd, 1/6th and 1/12th flip charts and the
third set of 1/5th, 1/10th and 1/100th flip charts is to be
explained to the children. 
Any rational number can be
represented in the form of a fraction. Fraction is
generally represented as a/b, where a and b are integers and
b>0. E.g. 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/8, 1/10, 1/00 etc. 
 Children are
introduced to the concept of fraction through graphical
representation of fractions.
 It is done by
associating different portions with their respective values.
E.g. 1/4 is half of 1/2 and twice 1/8.
 A number 1/5 for
instance can be expressed as twice 1/10 and 20 times 1/100.
 It is important that
children link the parts with their respective values .

Teaching Learning Materials (TLM)
can make learning much more effective and fun in classrooms.

Taleem is an initiative in this direction.
