UKS2 (Year 5 and 6) multiplying quantities by fractions, finding  quantities given fraction quantity

UKS2 (Year 5 and 6) multiplying quantities by fractions, finding quantities given fraction quantity

Learning Objectives Starter: To compare improper fractions and mixed numbers Main Lesson: To multiply proper fractions and mixed numbers by whole numbers, supported by materials and diagrams (Year 5) To associate a fraction with division (Year 6) To find a whole quantity given the quantity represented by a unit fraction (Y6) To recognise and use relationships between operations including inverse operations (KS3 This lesson consists of: A Starter consisting of a series of progressively harder problems where the children have to compare mixed numbers with improper fractions and use <> sign to show which are larger. A connect activity challenging children to consider whether the product of two numbers always produces a larger numbers as a way to start considering the effect of multiplying by fractions. An Interactive Whiteboard teaching introduction for both Notebook and ActivInspire flipchart, to teach children to understanding how to multiply whole numbers by fractions (by dividing by denominator and multiplying by numerator (starting with diagrams) and how to find the whole quantity of a number, when they are given what a fraction of that number represents. A 4-way differentiated series of tasks requiring children to multiply whole numbers by fractions and find whole numbers when they are given what a fraction of that number represents (i.e. ¾ x ? = 24). Answers included to ease marking. A final AFL / Next Steps task, providing three answers to a SATs question and children are invited to use the methods they have learned to work out which is correct.

Halloween Maths

Halloween Maths

FREE for new buyers – Enter code SEPTEMBER-SAVER at checkout. 6 fun Halloween Mental Maths Hidden Word / Spot the Mistakes Puzzles (and solutions) for Key Stage 2 (KS2) and equivalents. These are perfect for mental maths practice in October. There are 3 Set A puzzles that best suit Year 6 and 5 (P7 and P6) and 3 Set B puzzles originally designed for Year 4 (P5) - and Year 3 (P4) if all concepts have been covered. Both sets could be used in the same class for differentiation if required. Set A might also suit some early KS3 classes. An engaging alternative to worksheets, these make ideal starter, early finisher or homework activities for that spooky time of year! Similar to codebreaker puzzles, a Halloween-related word is revealed after completing mental arithmetic calculations. Each puzzle contains a grid. Within each box is a calculation and a letter. Pupils circle any boxes containing mistakes. Then they assemble letters from the circled boxes to reveal the Halloween word. Puzzles can be completed individually or in pairs / groups. Pupils often forget or avoid checking their work for errors so it’s great to get them carefully checking in these puzzles. Spotting common errors may help them remember to check their own work and help them avoid common errors themselves. Concepts include: Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division, Times Tables, Doubling and Halving, Multiplying and Dividing by 10 and 100, Place Value, Negative Numbers, Fractions, Percentages and Decimals (Not all concepts feature in Set B) My Numeracy Hidden Word and Crossnumber Puzzle Packs have been especially popular.

WHOLE LESSON: EQUIVALENT FRACTIONS

WHOLE LESSON: EQUIVALENT FRACTIONS

This is a whole lesson on creating a fraction equivalent to a given fraction. The lesson starter is 10 general questions on grade 1/2 mathematics. The lesson powerpoint takes students through the concept of how a fraction can be "disguised" so that it looks completely different but yet has the same value. The differentiated resource allows students to write their answers on it. There is also a code breaker which will challenge students.

WHOLE LESSON: ONE AS A FRACTION OF ANOTHER

WHOLE LESSON: ONE AS A FRACTION OF ANOTHER

Complete lesson on the concept of writing one quantity as a fraction of another. For example, in a room of 20 students, 8 of them wear glasses: write the glasses wearers as a fraction of the room. There is a starter which can be used in your other lessons as it is 10 questions of a general GCSE grade 3 level. The powerpoint takes the students through the procedure and then there is a differentiated resource which students can write on. There is also extension material which require more thinking about the selection of the numbers. There is also a matching puzzle with the questions in the top half and the answers in the bottom.
