Answers to Friday’s quiz:

Maths: Fractions of an amount

Example: of 16

  1. The denominator (the bottom number) tells you how many ‘plates’ you need. In the question above the denominator is 4 so I need 4 plates:
  2. Now I have to share my ‘cakes’ onto the ‘plates’. In the question above, the number I need to share is 16. I always make sure I use crosses to show the ‘cakes’ as these will be easier to count.
  3. Finally, the numerator (top number) tells me how many ‘plates’ to count. In the question above that is 3. So I will count the crosses in 3 of the ‘plates’, which for this question is 12.
  4. So… of 16 = 12

Can you complete the following questions in your home learning books?

  1. of 18 =
  2. of 12 =
  3. of 20 =
  4. of 8 =
  5. of 9 =
  6.  of 12 =

Don’t forget to look at Storyweaver for some stories to read!

I found this really good website with people reading lots of different books: https://www.storylineonline.net/ . I really liked the story called ‘Library Lion’. It’s about a grumpy man called Mr. McBee who thankfully learns a lesson! I think I’d quite like to have lion in our school’s library, especially one as cute and helpful as the one in this book!

Be good, keep learning and stay safe!
