I create resources for mathematics teaching based on the Singapore and Shanghai curriculum models for best practice. I will focus on the core principles of Intelligent Practice, Low-Threshold High-Ceiling tasks, fluency based activities and Problem Solving and Reasoning activities.

This is the full Intelligent Practice programme developed for fractions, and comes complete with answers on separate pages. You can try the Intelligent Practice: Fractions - Thirds free sample before you buy.
There are separate pages for each multiple of 3 (and corresponding 10x value) from 3 to 99, representing 33 pages of worksheets designed specifically for developing student confidence and deeper understanding.
The visual representations (BAR models) of the fractions aim to help children understand the concept of three ‘parts’ to a ‘whole’. Intelligent practice guides them through calculating one third, two third, and three thirds of the amount.
The second section enables children to repeat this process for an amount that is 10 times greater, helping to reinforce place value understanding, and its effect on the fraction parts.
The final section encourages children to reflect on the patterns they have noticed. Skilful questioning from the teacher will enable the children to identify, for example:

  • Why the whole amounts used are always multiples of 3;
  • Why the ‘parts’ in each section increase by the same amount each time;
  • Why the ‘parts’ between sections are also 10x greater;
  • Why every time the ‘whole’ increases by 3, each part increases by 1, etc.
