Maths - Fractions

16 Nov 2015

In Maths we used fraction strips to help us work out fractions of amounts.

For example. If you have to work out 3/4 of 16 you need to fold your strip in half and then in half again.Your strip will look like this.

 
       
 
 After this we shared 16 objects equally between the 4 fractions.

 
xxxx xxxx xxxx xxxx
 

Now we needed to circle or colour 3 of the fractions.
 
xxxx xxxx xxxx xxxx
 

We had to count the objects in the 3 fractions.

So....3/4 of 16 = 12.

Have a look how hard we all worked!


Here we divided the strips into thirds.


 
 If you fold them in half again you get sixths.


 
So... 3/4 of 8 is 6.


 We counted out the correct amount of objects
before we started sharing them. 

 

 
We wrote our sums and answers neatly in our books. 
 

 
 10...11...12...How many more dice do I need to share?



 
I just want to double check the answer Eden...
 

 
 I can now share the 8 objects...


 
 Did I share the objects equally?


 
How many do we need to count out first?

 

 
 2/3 of 15 is....



 You can also use a pie fraction circle to help you work out the answers. 
 


 
 Did I share these correctly?

 
We are working neatly and accurately in our books. 
 


9...10..11...
