Loop Card Races (Fractions of an Amount 1)

Loop Card Races (Fractions of an Amount 1)

This download contains four sets of 16 cards. Students choose a set of cards and sort them into order! The questions are the same for each set, but the sort order has been changed. This way, students can repeat the activity with different versions of the cards and check that they have learnt from earlier mistakes. These cards only ask for unit fractions of each amount. See Fractions of an Amount 2 for non-unit numerators. [CLICK HERE] for a list of Loop Cards on other topics. The cards can either be used by individuals, pairs or small groups. Solutions and instructions are included, but my favourite use is for two students to have different versions of the cards and race each other. They then check their answers, shuffle, swap packs and race again (quickest overall time wins!) Cut out card size is approx. 65 x 90 mm.

Converting Fractions or Decimals into Percentages

Converting Fractions or Decimals into Percentages

This short lesson I use with KS2/KS3 students when looking at converting Fractions into Percentages or Decimals into Percentages. The lesson is accompanied with a Worksheet for students to answer in class or as a piece of homework. It demonstrates the style I use in class which is to work through examples in class with students pitching in ideas of how to answer the question along the way. Followed by the student then tackling questions on their own. My shop is full of lessons like this (however longer than this lesson). Hence a bought lesson will give you plenty of worked examples as board work with a worksheet to conclude, lasting the student beyond your lesson.

simple fractions pizza

Worksheet to practice half, whole and quarter with practical colouring (or cooking) activity. I used this with a small SEN class and made the pizzas following the instructions and whilst they were cooking coloured the recipe sheet with the ingredients covering the correct fractions but you could use it only for colouring the correct fractions.

Converting mixed numbers and improper fractions

This worksheet is designed so that students will hopefully gain an understanding of the process of converting mixed numbers and improper fractions, without having to write down a series of steps or instructions to follow. For both conversions the first set of questions are scaffolded, then for later questions the scaffolding is removed so they are doing the whole conversion themselves. There are 20 conversions in both directions, worked solutions are provided.
