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.
