EPISODE NOTES

1. Making Arrangements - 2. Shall - 3. Adjectival Numbers - 4. Dates - 5. At, On & In - 6. Fractions

 6. FRACTIONS Fractions are numbers that are less than one. We call something like this complete circle a whole. This is a half of a circle. We can also say that it’s one half of a circle or use the symbol ½ . This is a quarter of a circle. We can also say that it’s one quarter of a circle or use the symbol ¼ . This is an eighth of a circle. We can also say that it’s one eighth of a circle or use the symbol 1/8 Except for a half and a quarter the numbers are the same as the numbers we use for dates and the order of things, but we always say an or a or one before them: an eighth / one eighth / 1/8 a sixteenth / one sixteenth / 1/16 a twentieth / one twentieth / 1/20 We say an eighth because eighth begins with a vowel sound. We will explain how to use an and a in episode 14.
