Adding fractions with area model

This page uses Geogebra to demonstrate using an area model to understand adding fractions.

What are fractions?

 A fraction is a number that describes part of a whole number. Because fractions are numbers just like 5, or 2, or 23, they live on a number line.

Where is one whole?

When you see a fraction, you need to keep in mind what the two numbers mean. The top number (numerator) represents the number of groups or parts that you can see. The bottom number (denominator) represents the number of groups or parts needed to make one whole.
