In this lesson, we will explore different ways of representing fractions including as part of a whole, as a number, as a result of division and as part of a set.

In this lesson, we will identify fractions of quantities for unit fractions only (where the numerator is one).

In this lesson, we will use fraction bars to help us recognise equivalent fractions.

In this lesson, we will use fraction bars to help us recognise equivalent fractions.

In this lesson, we will identify fractions of quantities for non-unit fractions (where the numerator is more than one).

In this lesson, we will take a closer look at equivalent fractions. We will explore the relationship between the numerator and denominaor in pairs of equivalent fractions.

In this lesson, we will use pizza problems to explore the connection between fractions and division.

In this lesson, we will compare pairs of fractions. We will compare pairs of fractions with the same denominator, and then we will compare pairs of fraction with different denominators.

In this lesson, we will order a set of fractions with denominators that are multiples or factors of each other. We will place them in order on a number line.

In this lesson, we will learn about mixed numbers and learn how to read, write and represent them.

In this lesson, we will learn about improper fractions and learn how to read, write and represent them. Then we will begin to relate improper fractions to mixed numbers.

In this lesson we will explore representations to connect mixed numbers and improper fractions, before using multiplication more formally to convert mixed numbers into improper fractions.

In this lesson, we will use bar models to support our understanding of adding fractions where the total does not exceed one.

In this lesson, we will use bar models to support our understanding of subtracting fractions and create our own subtraction problems involving fractions.

In this lesson, we will explore fractions that total one or greater than one using fraction bars to support understanding.

In this lesson, we will explore subtracting fractions involving fractions greater than one using fraction bars and number lines to build our understanding.

In this lesson, we will solve word problems which require us to find unit fractions of quantities.

In this lesson, we will solve word problems which require us to find non-unit fractions of quantities.

In this lesson, we will use bar models to solve word problems that compare fractions of quantities.

In this lesson, we will apply our knowledge of fractions to three reasoning problems.
