Pie Chart to Show FifthsA traditional way to teach fractions is to give students a picture of a pizza and have them divide it up into equal parts. A pie chart is a graphic organizer that works in the same way as a pizza picture. It can be used to help students show and understand fractions. The chart forms a circle which can be divided into equal parts. By coloring the chart using different colors, students begin to see the pieces as equal parts of the whole. In the Fifths Pie Chart, the chart is divided into five equal parts. Students decide how to color each part. They then write the fractions for the amount of the pie chart that is yellow and the amount that is dark blue. In this way, students gain experience with making fractional pictures and writing the fractions they represent.
