MATHS CHALLENGES

22.6.20 - Fractions

This week we are learning about fractions. A fraction is shown using two digits, the top digit is the numerator which shows how many parts are counted. The bottom digit, is the denominator which tells us how many parts the whole is shared into.

Halving

Choose an object from your house that you have more than one of. Maybe shoes, teddies, coins...

Now share this in half *Remember this means 2 equal groups. Can you share all the amounts equally?

 

The video below is a great one to help support you with halving! All you will need is two 10 frames and number cards 1-20 which you can make yourself at home.
Fraction games

Halving is the inverse (opposite) of doubling.

         Half of 6 = 3             Double 3 = 6

 

Can you create your own double ladybirds like in the picture? Or maybe you will create a butterfly or a different animal.

*Remember there needs to be 2 equal groups.
