This term we have been learning about fractions in our Number and Algebra sessions.
One of the warm up games we play is called ‘Bump it Up’. This game uses a large dice with fractions on it. Players need to find fractions on the playing board which are greater than, less than or equal to fraction on the die. We will have this one out for Open Night!
We are beginning to add and subtract fractions with the same denominator and then we will see if we can add fractions with different denominators!
Speaking of different denominators, we have found it challenging to place fractions on a number line when the denominators are not the same. We are becoming more confident when simplifying fractions to an easier form to work with.
Some of us are working through some differentiated challenges which require us to problem solve in teams.
Many of us had said that fractions and decimals were our biggest challenge in maths, before we started this unit. We have still got a lot to learn, but we are feeling more confident with our skills than ever before!
