# In common denominator, and change each fraction to

In this research, the researcher choose the

topic of fractions even though there are lots of topics in Mathematics.

Students will be able to compute such Mathematical equation involving of

fractions. The problem that the student will solve, will be dealing with the

basic operation of fractions; adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing

fraction.

Students

should understand first what fraction is. Fraction (from Latin fractus, “broken”) represents a part of a whole or, more

generally, any number of equal parts. When spoken in everyday English, a

fraction describes how many parts of a certain size there are, for example,

one-half, eight-fifths, three-quarters. Numerators and denominators are also

used in fractions that are not common,

including compound fractions, complex fractions, and mixed numerals. In

a fraction, the number of equal parts being described is the numerator (from Latin numer?tor, “counter” or “numberer”), and the type

or variety of the parts is the denominator

(from Latin d?n?min?tor, “thing

that names or designates”). The numerator represents a number of equal

parts, and the denominator, which cannot be zero, indicates how many of those

parts make up a unit or a whole.

When it comes on solving fractions with

operation of addition, students should prioritize its function. The rule of

adding fraction is that the only like quantities can be added. Unlike

quantities must be converted to like quantities. Students should follow the

rule of it. In subtracting fraction is as same as that adding them; find a

common denominator, and change each fraction to an equivalent fraction with the

chosen common denominator. The resulting fraction will have that denominator, and

its numerator will be result of subtracting the numerator of the original

fractions.

To multiply fractions, multiply the

numerators and multiply its denominator. In also dividing fractions, divide the

fraction by a whole number, you may either divide the numerator, if it goes

evenly into the numerator, or multiply the denominator by the number.

Through this simple instructions, the

researcher are hoping that it will help those students that will be interested

with this research that they are conducting. The researchers are conducting a

research about the level of performance of grade 8 students in solving

fractions. With the use of questionnaires, the researcher will be able to know

their level of performance on the said field.

Upon conducting this research, the

researcher are assigned to use a quantitative research, so that the researcher

are able to know the percentage of those students that are being confused upon

solving it. Not just that but also study the reasons why the researchers have

that kind of answers or result. Upon this research design, the researcher will

get informed on how was their performance is.

The researchers are conducting

such research not just for our group to pass our project but to know the

situation of every students upon on our topic, know their capability that we

are looking for. After knowing the level of their performance the researchers

are looking for, the researcher will going to recommend something on them so

that they will be able to understand the fraction is. Also on the end of this

research, the researcher are hoping that this research would not help not just

us, as the researcher but also the students, teachers, and other reader that

will going to read our conducted res
