Example: 1/2, The part is called the NUMERATOR in this fraction we are talking about 1 part., The DENOMINATOR is the whole. In this fraction it is the number 2. It tells how many pieces the whole is divided into.

Example: 3/5, The part is called the Numerator. In this fraction the numerator is the number 3., The DENOMINATOR is the whole. In this fraction the whole is divided into 5 parts.

Example: 7/4, The numerator has 7 parts and and the denominator is cut into fourths.

Example: 7/3, The Numerator has 7 parts, the Denominator is cut into thirds

Example: 2/4, 2/4 = 4/8

Example: 6/10, 6/10= 12/20

Example: 1 3/4, This mixed number has 1 whole and the fraction 3/4.

I made this map on fractions using the web 2.0 tool, MindMeister. I liked some aspects of it, but I did not like the green connection arrow. It is very hard to control, and would not allow me to connect the same ideas twice. I did not find the icons useful to my topic, but I did pick a very specific topic. I also found the design of the map confining, but perhaps that is beause I am comparing it to Inspiration which has unlimited design abilities. I did link 3 interactive sites to this map and two notes. Both were very easy to accomplish. I will have to explore the use of this tool more to see how I can apply it in my classroom. Betsy Huberth
