Equivalent fractions (part 1) - fractions equal to one half

Equivalent fractions (part 1) - fractions equal to one half

(0)
This is our first of 2 videos on equivalent fractions. We look at fractions equivalent to one half, with the help of fraction cubes and fraction circles. We think look at the pattern to understand the rule for fractions being equivalent to one half.
Division as grouping - using concrete resources.

Division as grouping - using concrete resources.

(0)
In this video we look at division as grouping by partitioning the number into tens and ones and using bundles of ten straws to represent the tens and individual straws to represent the ones. We then divide the tens and the ones by grouping.
Column addition - with concrete resources

Column addition - with concrete resources

(0)
In this video we use concrete resources to help children understand column addition. We use bundles of ten straws and individual straws to represent the tens and ones. We begin by showing addition without exchanging, then with exchanging
Subtracting fractions with the same denominator

Subtracting fractions with the same denominator

(0)
In this video we use concrete resources (fraction circles and cubes) to ensure children have conceptual understanding of how to subtract fractions with the same denominator. We subtract from one whole, then look at what happens when the first fraction is bigger than one whole
Adding fractions with the same denominator

Adding fractions with the same denominator

(0)
In this video we show how concrete resources can help children to understand the concept of adding fractions with the same denominator. We start with the fractions adding up to less than one whole , then show what happens when they add to more than one whole
Video: Telling the time in analogue (part 2) o'clock, half past, quarter past, quarter to

Video: Telling the time in analogue (part 2) o'clock, half past, quarter past, quarter to

(0)
This is our 2nd of 4 videos on analogue time. In this video we begin by focusing on just the minutes hand to understand o’clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to. We begin with the numbers removed, so the focus is more on the position of the hand, rather than the number it is pointing to. We then look at the hour hand and minute hand on 2 separate clocks and then bring the 2 hands together on the same clock. In our next video we will be looking at time to 5 minutes
Telling the time in analogue (part 1) Using just the hour hand to understand o'clock and half past

Telling the time in analogue (part 1) Using just the hour hand to understand o'clock and half past

(0)
This is the 1st of 4 videos on analogue time. In this video we are only focusing on the hour hand to learn O’ clock and half past the hour. Children find time difficult when both hands are presented together, over these 4 videos we break it down so only one hand is introduced at a time before both hands together, once children are secure. We look at the hours 1-12 on a straight line number line before looking at them in a circle. This is to show that reading a clock is no more difficult than reading a number line. In our next 3 videos we will be looking the hour hand and the minute hands separately before looking at both hands together on one clock.

Telling the time in analogue (part 3) Reading time to 5 minutes

(0)
This is our 3rd of 4 videos on analogue time. In this video we begin by focusing on just the minutes hand to read the time to 5 minutes. We start by looking at the minutes on a straight number line, before looking at them with just the minutes hand on the clock. We then look at the hour hand on a separate clock, before bringing both hands together onto the same clock.

Telling the time in analogue (part 4) Reading time to 1 minute

This is our 4th of 4 videos on analogue time. In this video we begin by focusing on just the minutes hand to read the time to 1 minute. We start by looking at the minutes on a straight number line, before looking at them with just the minutes hand on the clock. We then look at the hour hand on a separate clock, before bringing both hands together onto the same clock.
