Thought-Process to Discover Knowledge

Welcome to **nub****trek**.

Books and other education websites provide "matter-of-fact" knowledge. Instead, nubtrek provides a thought-process to discover knowledge.

In each of the topic, the outline of the thought-process, for that topic, is provided for learners and educators.

To make best use of nubtrek, understand what is available.

nubtrek is designed to explain mathematics and science for young readers. Every topic consists of four sections.

trek,

jogger,

exercise.

This captures the small-core of concept in simple-plain English. The objective is to make the learner to think about. continue

Trekking is bit hard, requiring one to sweat and exert. The benefits of taking the steps are awesome. In the trek, concepts are explained with exploratory questions and your thinking process is honed step by step. continue

This captures the essence of learning and helps one to review at a later point. The reference is available in pdf document too. This is designed to be viewed in a smart-phone screen. continue

This part does not have much content as of now. Over time, when resources are available, this section will have curated and exam-prep focused questions to test your knowledge. continue

Classification by place value

» Like Fractions

→ having same denominator or fractions given in the same place value

→ eg: `1/8` and `3/8`

» Unlike Fractions

→ having different denominators or fractions given in different place values

→ eg: `1/8` and `1/12`

Like fractions are fractions in the same place value and so denominators are equal.

Unlike fractions are fractions in different place values and so denominators are not equal.

Based on the place values (denominators), the fractions are classified as like fractions and unlike fractions.

Starting on learning "Like and Unlike fractions". ;; Based on the place values (denominators), the fractions are classified as like fractions and unlike fractions.

Which of the following observations are true for the given figure?

- The two fractions are equal.
- The two fractions are not equal

The answer is 'The two fractions are equal.'. The fractions represented in the figure are of the same amount.

Which of the following observations are true for the given figure?

- The two fractions are equal.
- The two fractions are not equal

The answer is 'The two fractions are not equal'. The fractions represented in the figure are of different amounts.

The two fractions are shown with one piece each. Even though the fractions are only one piece each, the amounts are different. Why?

- The whole is cut into different sizes
- The fractions are equal

The answer is 'The whole is cut into different sizes'. The place value of these fractions are different.

The figure shows the two fractions as part of their whole. In the first fraction, the whole is divided into `8` pieces and the fraction represents `1/8` place value. In the second fraction, the whole is divided into `12` pieces and the fraction represents `1/12` place value. The sizes of single pieces are not equal. That is reflected in the denominator, as the denominator represents the number of parts the whole is divided into or the place value.

The figure shows the two fractions with different place values. First fraction has the place value of `1/8` and the second has the place value of `1/12`. That is reflected in the denominators of the fractions, as the denominator represents the place value.

Which of the following is a meaning for the word 'like'?

- a large water body
- having same characteristics or qualities

The answer is 'having same characteristics or qualities'.

What is the term used to refer two fractions having same denominator?

- Practice Saying the Answer

The answer is 'like fractions'.

What does the word 'unlike' mean?

- having different characteristics or qualities
- to remove water from a lake

The answer is 'having different characteristics or qualities'.

What is the term used to refer two fractions of different denominators?

- Practice Saying the Answer

The answer is 'unlike fractions'.

**Like Fractions: ** The fractions are given in the same place value and so the denominators are equal.

eg: `2/4` and `3/4`.

**Unlike Fractions: **The whole is divided into parts of different sizes. The fractions given in different place values and so the denominators are not equal.

eg: `2/3` and `3/5`.

whole;cut;different sizes

The whole is cut into different sizes

fractions;equal

The fractions are equal

The answer is 'The whole is cut into different sizes'. The place value of these fractions are different.

The figure shows the two fractions as part of their whole. In the first fraction, the whole is divided into 8 pieces and the fraction represents 1 by 8 place value. In the second fraction, the whole is divided into 12 pieces and the fraction represents 1 by 12 place value. ;; The sizes of single pieces are not equal. That is reflected in the denominator, as the denominator represents the number of parts the whole is divided into or the place value.

The figure shows the two fractions with different place values. First fraction has the place value of 1 by 8 and the second has the place value of 1 by 12. That is reflected in the denominators of the fraction, as the denominator represents the place value.

The answer is 'having same characteristics or qualities'.

What is the term used to refer two fractions having same denominator?

like

The answer is 'like fractions'.

What does the word 'unlike' mean?

different;characteristics;qualities

having different characteristics or qualities

remove;water;from

to remove water from a lake

The answer is 'having different characteristics or qualities'.

What is the term used to refer two fractions of different denominators?

unlike

The answer is 'unlike fractions'.

Like fractions are fractions in the same place value and so, denominators are equal.;; Unlike fractions are fractions in different place values and so, denominators are not equal.

Like Fractions: The fractions are given in the same place value and so the denominators are equal. For example 2 by 4 and 3 by 4 are like fractions.

Unlike Fractions: The whole is divided into parts of different sizes. The fractions are given in different place values and so the denominators are not equal. for example 2 by 3 and 3 by 5 are unlike fractions.

What are the fractions 2 by 4 and 2 by 5?

like

like fractions

unlike

unlike fractions

The answer is 'unlike fractions'.
