L.C.  To be able to recognise, find and write fractions of a discrete set of objects.


Excellent work yesterday.


On your whiteboards, see if you can work out the answer to the in focus. Once you and you partner have finished check each other’s answers. 



Think carefully about the fraction that you need to find out. 

You may need to complete more than one step in order to find the answer.


Let’s see if you were correct.

The 2 steps we need to get the correct answer are as follows.


  1. Divide the number by the denominator.
  2. Multiply the answer of step 1 by the numerator.


Let’s work together to work out the answers for the 2 questions above.



Step 1 was to divide 12 by 6. This gives us the answer 2.


Step 2 requires us to multiply 2 by our numerator (5). 
2 x 5 = 10



Step 1 was to divide 12 by 4. This gives us the answer 3.


Step 2 requires us to multiply 3 by our numerator (3). 
3 x 3 = 9
