The first lesson explores the part whole relationship. We have worked in class on the concept of a fraction as an equal part of a whole, so this should be revision.
Tuesday's lesson builds on this .
On Wednesday the lesson looks at unit fractions - that's any fraction with a numerator of one.
On Thursday the work tackles the idea of unit fractions of a quantity. This requires children to see that a half of an amount is the sane as dividing it by two; that a quarter is the same as dividing by four. Division of amounts is done by using multiplication knowledge - so because 3 x 5 = 15, then 15 ÷ 3 = 5.
On Friday, non unit fractions are added.
Good luck and let me know how you get on.
