Abstract

This is a 13-minute story set in a village of natural numbers. A thief appears and is clearly not a natural number. It turns out that he is a (positive) rational number. Since all the characters (and hence the numbers) are positive, it is fair to say that this video is about natural numbers and fractions and their relation! The part-whole model is invoked and is used to define a (positive) rational number, explain equivalent fractions and that any natural number is also a rational number.
