Monday and Tuesday
Task for all.
Sheets as attached – sheet 1 for ½ for Monday and sheet 3 ¼ for Tuesday
Equivalent fractions – colour half – the half in this case is half the shape. Then count the squares all together in the shape and that become the denominator – the lower number – the amount that the whole has been shared into. The count the half that you have coloured to give you the numerator the amount of the pieces.
For example the children should find 5/10 is the same as ½ and we also know that 5 is half of 10- make this link.
Is related to ¼ - discuss that ¼ we can find by halving a half. So ½ of 8 = 4 and then half of 4 = 2. Does this happen when they count and write the fraction coloured?
Look at the fraction wall. Which fractions line up as the same? 2/4 and ½ should line up the same. Can you try applying this to a number? For example 12 - ½ of 12 = 6 and does 2/4 of 12 also = 6?
Remember that any number you apply a fraction to must be a multiple of the denominator. For example any number you quarter must be a multiple of 4: 4, 8, 12, 16…
