Fractions

Year 6 has been looking at Fractions. 
We created a Fraction Bridge with a partner. 






Some of the facts we discovered were:
In a proper fraction, the denominator is larger than the numerator.
The larger the denominator, the smaller the fraction.
As the bridge was created, we noticed that as the fraction diminished the gaps between each consecutive fraction diminished.

Then we started looking at equivalent fractions.
We created a fraction grid and then made equations of fractions that equalled a whole.













Here are the finished bridges with the explanations.

  1. Yes it sure was fun! I definitely learnt a few new things from this. I sure wonder where this maths topic will take us.
