This week in Practical Maths we are going to learn to find a fraction of an amount.
Last week we folded shapes to find a half and a quarter. We can use what we learnt last week to help us find a fraction of an amount this week.
We are going to find half of 8.
Share 8 spots into each half of the shape.
Let's try this
If we know half of 4 = 2
What would half of 4 tens be?
Half of 40 = 20
Let's try these together.
How could we find a quarter of an amount?
We need to share the whole amount into 4 equal groups.
Find a quarter of the amount using this 2Do.
