# Unit: Fractions

## Lessons:

15 lessons

### To describe the part whole relationship

In this lesson, you will explore and describe the part-whole relationship. We will look at what a whole is and various examples in real-life situations. We will then use this understanding to explore different examples of parts which make up the whole.

### To recognise parts that are equal and parts that are unequal

In this lesson, you will build upon our understanding of the whole and parts of a whole. We will explore the ideas around equal and unequal parts, using drawings and practical resources to help and support us.

### To recognise, identify and describe unit fractions

In this lesson, you will build on equal parts by looking at sharing amounts equally. You will name the fractions, and using your understanding of numerator, vinculum and denominator, you will write the fraction.

### To find unit fractions of a given quantity

During this lesson, we will continue to focus on unit fractions by finding fractions in different contexts. We will use pictorial representations alongside multiplication and division facts to solve a range of problems.

### To describe unit and non-unit fractions

In this lesson, we will use our knowledge and understanding of unit fractions to explore the idea of non-unit fractions. We will use images and visual resources to help us with this.

### To Identify and describe non-unit fractions

In this lesson, we will use our knowledge of fractions to understand what the term 'non-unit fraction' means. We will explore various shapes and begin to identify the non-unit fraction that is represented.

### Finding non-unit fractions of quantities

In this lesson, we will revisit what a non-unit fraction is. We will then use a ‘bar modelling’ strategy to help us calculate non-unit fractions of amounts. Finally, we will then work backwards by applying this knowledge to use the value of the parts to help us calculate the total value of the quantity (whole).

### Consolidating finding non-unit fractions of quantities

In this lesson, we will use our knowledge of fractions to consolidate finding non-unit fractions of a given quantity

### Comparing fractions with the same denominator

In this lesson, we will start to use pictorial representations to help identify and compare the size of fractions with the same denominator. We will then apply this learning to think more abstractly about what procedure is used to compare fractions with the same denominator.

### Compare and order unit fractions

In this lesson, we will explore the size of different unit fractions. We will compare and order these fractions, focusing on their denominators before we apply this knowledge to compare unit fractions of the same quantity.

### Fractions: Recognising equivalent fractions (Part 1)

In this lesson, we will explore fractions with different denominators and numerators that are equal to each other.

### Fractions: Recognising equivalent fractions (Part 2)

In this lesson, we will continue to explore fractions with different denominators and numerators that are equal to each other, focusing on thirds and sixths.

### Fractions: Adding fractions with the same denominator

In this lesson, we will be using your knowledge of addition to add fractions with the same denominator. We will use lots of different pictures of fractions, as well as the part/whole model to help us.

### Fractions: Subtracting fractions with the same denominator

In this lesson, we will be using your knowledge of subtraction to take-away fractions with the same denominator. We will use lots of different pictures of fractions, as well as the part/whole model to help us.

### Fractions: To revise learning on fractions

In this lesson, we will be revising everything you have learnt about fractions over the last 3 weeks of lessons. Looking at fractions as equal parts of a whole, how these can be represented in different ways, as well as unit and non-unit fractions, adding and subtracting fractions with the same denominator and equivalent fractions.
