It is important for students to understand that a fraction is part of a whole. They also need to make sure they are aware that the denominator shows how many parts the whole is divided into. What would be helpful for them to understand is that the closer the numerator and denominator are to each other, the larger the fraction and the farther apart the two numbers are…the smaller the fraction.
