Instructions
By default, “Circle Mode” is checked and the fraction is 1/8.
Step 1: To reset the activity, drag the green and red sliders to the left. The circle is now divided into two halves, and the fraction is 0/2 because no part is shaded.
Step 2: Check the “Rectangle Model” box. This introduces a rectangle that is divided into two halves, and the fraction is 0/2 because no part is shaded. So every time you create a fraction, it will be displayed on the circle and rectangle.
Step 3: Using the green slider for the numerator, and the red slider for the denominator, create as many fraction as possible and observe the display on the figures.
