Using the Set Model to Understand 1/2

Using the Set Model to Understand 1/2

Resource Type
Developed By
National Center on Intensive Intervention

This video shows how to use the set model to represent fractions, such as 1/2. In the set model, the whole is represented by a set of objects, such as two-colored chips. Individual chips within the set, represent the fractional parts. It is important that students be exposed to the set model because fractions in real-world settings are often represented this way.
