In this lesson, we 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.
In this lesson, we 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.
In this lesson, we will build on equal parts by looking at sharing amounts equally. We will name the fractions, and using our understanding of the numerator, the vinculum and the denominator we will write the fraction.
In 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.
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 fractions that are represented.
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 work backwards by applying this knowledge to use the value of the parts to help us calculate the total value of the quantity (whole).
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.
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.
In this lesson, we will be using our 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.
In this lesson, we will revise what we have learnt about fractions throughout this unit. We will look at fractions as equal parts of a whole and explore how these can be represented in different ways. We will also revist unit and non-unit fractions, add and subtract fractions with the same denominator and equivalent fractions.
