Today we will be learning how to find and write unit fractions of a set of objects.
A unit fraction is a fraction where the numerator (the number on the top of the fraction) is 1.
The denominator (on the bottom) can be any other whole number.
A good way to remember it is by remembering that unit means 1!
Here are some examples of unit fractions: ½, ¼ and ¹⁄₁₀
