Fractions in Grade III

Hi kids,Earlier we have discussed about history of rational and irrational numbers and today we are going to learn about an important chapter in math called as  math fractions and simplifying fractions for Grade III of cbse syllabus. Fractions form an important part of math. A fraction is formed if it has a combination of the two terms which means a numerator and a denominator. A fraction is generally written in the form of a/b where a is numerator and b is denominator. To be more precise fractions can be defined as the ratio between a numerator and a denominator. Any common fraction is an example of math fraction like 2/3, 5/6 are all examples of a fraction. In words we can write 2/3 means 2 parts out of three. Let us take a simple example. Let's suppose A score 80 marks out of hundred in maths,  we can represent his marks in the form of a fraction as 80/100. It means eighty marks out of hundred.
Math fractions has its application in ratios as well as in division. In general we can classify fractions in two forms Proper and Improper fractions. A fraction is said to be a proper fraction if the numerator is less than denominator. Moreover a fraction is said o be an improper fraction if denominator is less than the numerator. Further we can say that the fractions form an important part of mathematics. Like numbers are the basic step to start with maths, fractions are the basis of maths as it is important in calculations and in understanding many things.(want to Learn more about ,click here),
Fractions  is a wide topic and there are many calculations and problems related to it. To sum up it can be said that fractions can also be of various types like mixed fractions, compound fractions, decimal fractions to name a few.
This is all about the Fractions and if anyone want to know about interpret data
then they can refer to Internet and text books for understanding it more precisely. You can also refer 4th Grade blog to learn about Factors and products.
