Fractions


IMG_2604-2

Students have almost finished studying fractions. Students have been learning about the size of different fractions. Did you know that if the denominator is a big number, the pieces actually get smaller in size (not bigger)?

This fraction wall (made by a student) clearly demonstrates this.

It’s also easy to see on this excellent example of a fraction wall which fractions are equivalent to each other. For example, can you find what fractions equal the same as 1/2? Look down the wall and figure out how many quarters make 1/2. How many sixths? How many eighths make 1/2? How many twelfths?

Can any number of thirds make exactly 1/2? Why or why not?

You could also try to figure out which fractions are the same size (or equivalent/equal to) 1/3, 1/4, 2/3 and 3/4 for extra challenge.

Remember to visit the Next website to view all sorts of videos on fractions: Just type in or click on www.nextmaths.blogspot.com and click on the ‘Fractions’ link. It’s full of support and revision of what we’ve learnt so far, as well as some extension.

What have you enjoyed the most during fractions?
