1st Graders learn fractions from Mr. Morgan

Mark Morgan
1st Grade Math Teacher

Mr. Morgan recently taught a lesson on fractions.  He used pieces of cake as an example and showed how to add more pieces than are in one cake to get a mixed number and then he taught how to state the mixed number as an improper fraction.

The amazing thing was he was teaching the lesson to Mt. Helix Academy 1st graders!  They picked it right up (or, should we say “they ate it right up”).

Kids can do amazing things when they are properly taught and kept engaged!
