We use fractions all the time and just don't realize it. Think about what you do when you are cooking. Chances are if you are following a recipe you will need to use a measuring cup or measuring spoons. Many times a recipe will call for a 1/4 cup or 1/2 teaspoon. Think about the clock that ticks counting down the minutes until the end of the school day. Most times clocks are read on the quarter hour. It is a quarter past, half past or quarter to.
There are many other scenarios that fractions are used in real life. Can you think of any??
