Learning Focus- Making a whole


  1. We know that a fraction means a part, so a fraction is the part of a whole object or quantity. 
  2. Therefore, 3/4 means 3 parts of a whole that is divided into 4 equal parts (or quarters). 
  3. When making a whole with hundredths, knowing numbers bonds to a hundred can help. There are one hundred hundredths in a whole, so to calculate what to add to 0.48 to make one whole, the number bond 48 + 52 = 100 will help. 0.48 + 0.52 = one whole.
