## Fractional Pizza Party

Fractional Pizza Party!

“Fractional Pizza Party” serves as a delightful and effective tool for learning about fractions in a relatable context. Through the lens of a pizza party, students are not only entertained but also guided through the fundamental concepts of fractions with clarity and ease.

By breaking down the scenario of sharing pizzas among a group of friends, the song vividly illustrates how fractions work in real-life situations. From dividing a pizza into equal parts to understanding fractions like 1/8, 2/8 (or 1/4), and 3/9 (or 1/3), students are led step by step through the process of recognizing, writing, and even reducing fractions.

The repetition of key concepts and the rhythmic flow of the song help reinforce learning and make the information more memorable. Furthermore, the inclusion of percentages adds another layer of understanding, showing the practical applications of fractions beyond just pizza slices.

By listening to Christopher Rudolph‘s song, students not only gain a deeper understanding of fractions but also develop a stronger foundation in mathematics in an engaging and enjoyable manner. So, next time you’re craving both pizza and math knowledge, let this song be your guide to a tasty and educational experience!

Fractional Pizza Party Song teaches students fractions and percents using a song about a pizza party. It also teaches about reducing fractions.

and 8 people were there.
for everyone to share.

Large pizzas have
8 slices until you are done.
That’s enough for each of them
to only have just one.

So, all each one could get
was one slice out of eight.
All each one could put
was one slice on their plate.

1 out of 8 is
a fraction of what exists.
1 out of 8
is written just like this: 1/8

1/8 can be written
in a way to represent
a percentage of the pie
which is 12.5 percent.

and 4 people were there.
for everyone to share.

Large pizzas have
8 slices until you are through.
That’s enough for each of them
to only have just two.

So, all each one could get
was two slices out of eight.
All each one could put
was two slices on their plate.

2 out of 8 is
a fraction of what exists.
2 out of 8
Is written just like this: 2/8

Now, 2 over 8
can be reduced to 1 over 4
It is still the same value
and they are not eating more.

Now, 1/4 can be written
in a way to represent
a percentage of the pie
which is 25 percent.

and 3 people were there.
for everyone to share.

Extra-large pizzas have
9 slices for you to see.
That’s enough for each of them
to have exactly three.

So, each one could get
3 slices out of nine.
Each one could get
three slices on which to dine.

3 out of 9 is
a fraction of what exists.
3 out of 9
is written just like this: 3/9

Now, 3 over 9
can be reduced to 1 over 3
It is the same value
and there are just still 3 slices to see.

Now, 1/3 can be written
in a way to represent
a percentage of the pie
which is 33.3 percent.  (note – .3 is repeating)

So, I hope you enjoyed your pizza
and the party was swell.
You learned a little about fractions
and now I say farewell!
