Fractions

ActivitiesPosted by Mrs McIlwrath Tue, February 06, 2018 19:16:52
We are learning about fractions. We are focusing on halves and quarters. We know that in order to find a fraction of a number, we must count all shapes/pictures first and then sort them into groups. We know that to find half of a shape/ number we share between two. We share into four groups when using quarters. An easy way to find a quarter of a number is to half the whole number and then half again.

We made pizza fractions in class. We had to find a fraction of a number of pepperoni pieces and place them on the pizza. We all worked on different fractions eg 1/2 1/4 1/3 1/5. We stuck little counters on to represent the topping. They looked good enough to eat!
