You're student(s) are going to love learning about fractions as we eat pies, see birds in the skies, and even win an Olympic prize! Three new NUMBEROCK characters come to life in this informative and easy to understand introduction to fractions. The numerator and denominator are shown in 3 real-world examples before introducing to students the idea of fractions on a number line, all the while reinforcing that fractions are equal parts of a whole.

LYRICS:

There were five pieces in one whole pie;
the denominator of the whole pie was five.
The numerator of my part was three,
as three fifths of the pie was for me.
My mom made the apple pie out of Granny Smiths.
She asked me if I liked it. I said, "I plead the fifth..."

The numerator's the part,
the denominator's the whole,
and fractions are parts of a whole.

Three birds were on a telephone pole.
The denominator, three, was the group as a whole.
The numerator, two, out of the thirds,
described the two thirds that were blue birds.
The numerator, two, described how many were blue.
Then something fell on my head... it was bird poo!

I took four shots on the goal;
three went in, but one hit the pole.
The denominator was all four shots.
The numerator was the three goals I'd got.
The other team's record had taken a toll;
I'd got three fourths of my shots and won Olympic Gold.

A number line has every fraction between zero and one.
Right in the middle is one half; one fourth is half of that.
A fraction's parts, you realize, have to be the same size.
Hey, we're late for the game!
Hate to leave you, guys!
