 LC- To simplify fractions.


Today we are going to start a very important piece of work on fractions. You will need to remember all previous learning from year 4 and 5.

Have a look at the following.

Did they all start with the same length of ribbon?

Yes they did, they just folded it into different sizes.

If you have a piece of ribbon and fold it into 4 then you have 4 quarters (4 x 1/4). If you then fold each of these into 2, you will have 8 pieces altogether. You have eighths. 


Let's learn.

Now you can try and do the Maths No Problem work. If you are at home then record this in your books and send a photo to your teacher.
