FRACTIONS

 

This week, we are going to look at fractions (without using the word!) to explore parts and wholes. We have already done lots of this learning in school so this will be a good recap of what we've done.

 

Work your way through these 5 lessons this week and then have a go at the quiz at the bottom of this page to see how you've got on! Don't worry about whether you're answers are right or wrong, just have a go. It is all good practice. Only I (Mrs Webber) can see your answers. :)

 

Once you've done these lessons, if you still want a challenge, follow the link to Gareth Metcalfe's lessons for some practical challenges and problem solving.

1. Explore the whole & part relationship in familiar contexts, using area, linear & quantity models
