Egyptian Fractions: Looking at Unit Fractions (Video)

Sep 29, 2020

A topic very rarely explored in the math classroom, but extremely useful to add to our math toolbox. Working only with unit fractions, the Egyptians renamed fractions that we would use today solely as the sum of unit fractions. Learn to work with fractions just as the Egyptians did, and find out why we may choose to use this knowledge in certain real-life problems. Recommended for upper elementary and above.
