    Parts of a whole (fractions) are a concept that children deal with at a very young age in their everyday life without being aware of it. In school they are introduced to it in the second class and they upgrade their knowledge up until the seventh class. Researches show that students experience several difficulties understanding the fractions. The aim of this master’s thesis is to show how teaching fractions by using the interactive whiteboard influences the results of learning together with different types of learners. The research was carried out according to the descriptive and casual - experimental method. We used the quantitative approach. It showed that the majority of students in our sample are auditory and visual learners, some are kinaesthetic. The analysis of covariance confirmed that using the interactive whiteboard makes fraction teaching more successful. It showed that, considering the learning achievements after the experiment, there are statistically important differences between the control group students the experimental group students. Considering the learning achievements after the experiment, there is also a statistically important difference between the auditory leaning type students of the control and the experimental group. The findings showed that compared to the control group, the experimental group students who are auditory learners achieved many more points after the experiment. The research also showed that the visual or kinaesthetic learners show more satisfaction when the interactive whiteboard is used in lessons. Doing the research, we wanted to make teachers aware of the possibility of improving the quality of teaching fractions with the interactive whiteboard and to encourage them to use it actively.
