Equivalent fractions

A complete lesson for first teaching the concept of equivalent fractions. Activities included: Starter: Some ‘fill the blank’ multiplication and division questions (basic, but a prerequisite for finding equivalent fractions with a required denominator or numerator). Main: Visual examples using shapes to introduce concept of equivalent fractions. A worksheet where pupils use equivalent fractions to describe the fraction of a shape. Examples and quick-fire questions on finding an equivalent fraction. A worksheet with a progression in difficulty on finding an equivalent fraction. A challenging extension task where pupils rearrange four digits to create fractions equivalent to given fractions. Plenary: A statement with a deliberate misconception to stimulate discussion and check pupils have understood the key concepts. Worksheets and answers included. Please review if you buy as any feedback is appreciated!

UKS2 Equivalent Fraction  match up activity

UKS2 Equivalent Fraction match up activity

An activity matching the fraction to the image of the shape. Children have to work out several fractions before or after the fraction they have using factor knowledge. I used this as an assessment task to ensure children were proficient in their understanding of fractions and how to calculate further equivalences. Includes answers.

UKS2 Fraction Decimal Percentage Reasoning questions

UKS2 Fraction Decimal Percentage Reasoning questions

Aimed at MA Year 6 to get pupils proficient in explaining their reasoning to do with fractions, decimals and percentages and the equivalences between them. I have included an odd one out question, a continue to pattern, would you rather etc to get children to give reasons for their ideas. Includes answers and an extension task. Please let me know if you have any feedback for this resources as I am constantly trying to improve my work. Thanks for looking.

Fractions of Quantities Game

Fractions of Quantities Game

A fantastic starter for Year 4 children who have been introduced to fractions of quantities, or as a recap for Year 5 children. It allows the children to work in pairs and use the starter as a game to practice their ability to calculate fractions of quantities. Included is two separate documents, one is for higher ability (HA) and the other for lower ability (LA). Each document has two sets of the game on one sheet allowing the required number of sheets to simply be printed. Printing them on coloured paper can also make it more interesting for the children. Laminating them and keeping them in envelopes/plastic pouches can keep the individual games together and allow them to be used over and over again.
