The ancient Egyptians only used fractions of the form 1/n, so any other fraction had to be represented as a sum of such unit fractions and all the unit fractions were different. This study explores some of the history of Egyptian fractions and gives you an algorithm for such representations. There's lots of investigations to do in this area of mathematics suitable for elementary school students and it is also designed as a resource for teachers.
