Fractions of a set

Today we used MnMs to find fractions of a set. We had 16 MnMs in our packets to start with and we found different fractions of this set. Then we ate one of the MnMs and found fractions of 15 of them. We ate different fractions of the set each time!

Check out the fractions that Alex made with his MnMs:

In this picture we see 4/5 (the four groups at the bottom) of 15 which is 12. 

This is a 1/5 of 15 which is 3 (the group at the top).

In this picture there was 15 altogether. 3/15 or 1/5 of the packet were red, 2/15 were orange, 5/15 or 1/3 were blue, 4/15 were green and 1/15 are yellow.
