This week Grade 1/2 will be learning about fractions. Students began to represent fractions by folding paper into equal parts. Shaylee and Bella explained remembered these two important concepts after our maths lesson today:
“I learnt that fractions have to have equal parts. If they don’t have equal parts it’s not a fraction.” Shaylee
“The more parts you fold, the smaller they get.” Bella
Where have you seen examples of fractions outside the classroom?
This week Grade 1/2 are learning about fractions and division in maths. Today we used the number of hits or misses out of a number of tries at something as an example of fractions. Students had a go at quoits, a tennis ball bouncing game and rock, paper, scissors. After playing they showed their fractions and wrote about them.
