1.1 Introduction

There are many situations when you use fractions. You read, talk and calculate by using fractions without even thinking about it.  You follow, for example, a recipe by using fractions.  You can split a pizza with a friend by using fractions.

The newspapers you read are full of fractions and you arrange a time with someone by using fractions.

So understanding and being able to calculate with fractions is important in order to work with other parts of mathematics.
