# Identify parts and wholes in different contexts

I can identify parts and wholes in different contexts.

## Lesson details

### Key learning points

- The whole has been divided into __ equal parts.
- Each equal part is one-__ of the whole.
- Fractions can be represented as part of a shape or a set.

### Common misconception

Children will often think that the total number within a set is always the denominator as shown in the plates and cupcakes example on the slides.

Put a set of 12 counters (or any countable objects) onto a mini-whiteboard. Children should practise dividing the set into equal groups, drawing rings around them. Repeat, 'The set has been divided into _ equal groups so the denominator is _'.

### Keywords

Part - The whole is all of a group or number.

Whole - A part is a section of the whole.

Equal - Have the same quantity or value.

Unequal - Do not have the same quantity or value.

Set - A collection of items.
