Mrs Mbatha from Phesheya Primary School teaches a lesson on fractions to a Grade 4 class.She introduces her lesson using an apple that are cut into equal parts. She shows them halves and quarters, using the apples. The fact that a half is part of a whole is very important and she tells that to the learners on several occasions. The learners are then told which is the denominator and which is the numerator in a fraction - it is not part of CAPS for Grade 4's but can be shown to them for interest sake. She does the same with quarters. The learners have to share the apples equally amongst them. Fractions are then ordered. A hand drawn chart is shown to the learners to show the different fractions.
