Instructables: Fraction Action with Coding

How can I divide a piece into 3rds, 10ths, 17ths? How do quarters and 12ths compare?

Investigate fractions and the math behind them! Use Codeblocks, the Autodesk coding environment in Tinkercad, to automatically create fractional pieces. View them or 3D print them. Make them in stock shapes or create your own shape.

This lesson explores the algorithms used to divide a standard piece into any number of fractions and line them up side by side to recreate the whole. Follow the code provided to step through the math, then come with your own shapes or algorithms.
