Represent fractions in drawings

Reading time: 8 min

We had learned how to understand fractions as proportions and how to read the proportion (i.e. the value for the numerator and denominator) from drawings. Below we briefly consider how we create a drawing from a fraction can.

Draw fraction (1/4) on the circle

Our fraction is:

We know that the circle has to be broken into. is to be selected or colored.

So we draw a circle and divide it into pieces of equal size. We divide the full circle, i.e. for each segment of the circle. Then we color any piece in color.

We speak “1 of 4” or “a quarter”.

Draw fraction (3/8) on the circle

Our fraction is:

We know that the circle has to be broken into. are to be colored.

So we draw a circle and divide it into pieces of equal size. We divide the full circle, i.e. for each segment of the circle. Then we color arbitrary pieces blue. They don't have to be next to each other!

We speak “3 of 8” or “three eighths”.

Draw fraction (2/4) on the rectangle

Our fraction is:

We know that the rectangle has to be broken down into. are to be colored.

So we draw a rectangle and divide it into equal pieces. To do this, we halve the length and width and draw the lines accordingly. Pieces of the same size are created. Then we color arbitrary pieces blue.

We speak “2 out of 4” or “two quarters”.

Note: corresponds to "1 of 2" and is therefore an abbreviated fraction.

Draw fraction (2/7) on the strip

Our fraction is:

We know the strip needs to be disassembled into. are to be colored.

So we draw a rectangle (our strip) and divide it into pieces of equal size. To do this, we calculate the side length (e.g.), we now enter this distance step by step and draw the lines vertically accordingly. Pieces of the same size are created. Then we color arbitrary pieces blue.

We speak “2 out of 7” or “two sevenths” (or “two sevenths”).

Draw a fraction (2/5) on the pentagon

Our fraction is:

We know that the pentagon can be broken down into. To do this, the corner points are simply connected to the center point. Then we color it.

We speak “2 out of 5” or “two fifths”.

Draw a fraction (3/9) on the cylinder

Our fraction is:

We know the cylinder needs to be disassembled into. To do this, we draw a vertical cylinder, measure the height and divide it by. We take this distance value step by step and draw the horizontal lines. This is how parts are created on the cylinder. Then we color it.

We speak “3 out of 9” or “three ninths”.

Note: corresponds to "1 of 3" and is therefore an abbreviated fraction.

Draw fraction (1/8) on the cuboid

Our fraction is:

We know that the cuboid has to be broken down into. There are several ways to do this. For example, the division makes sense. We draw a cuboid, measure the width and divide it into equal distances. Then we measure the length and divide it into equal distances. This is how pieces are made. Then we color it.

We speak “1 of 8” or “one eighth”.
