Can I order and compare fractions? Todays learning questions are… Can I find decimal equivalents of fractions?

0 1 1414 1515 3434 6 10 1212 1212 1 Lets start by ordering these fractions on a numberline. Remember to draw a diagram if you need to.

0 1 1414 1515 3434 6 10 1212 1212 1 How did you do? Best start with this one…...then this ones easy!... and this one too! I can order fractions!

1414 1515 3434 6 10 1212 <> Now wed better compare them…

1414 1515 3434 6 10 1212 <> Did you find any of these? 1515 3434 >< 6 10 Which others did you find?

1414 3434 1212 1212 1 If these were fractions of £1.00 How much money would we have? 0 £1 100 pence? pence Solve these on your whiteboard ? pence 25p50p75p£1.50

1515 6 10 If these were fractions of £1.00 What about these two? One fifth of 100 is the same as 100 divided by 5 or how many 5s in 100 Six tenths is a bit trickier… but I know one tenth of a pound is 10p, so six tenths must be 6 x 10p. Thats easy! 20p60p

What do you notice about the fractions of one pound (£1.00) and the fractions of a kilogram (1kg)? 1 / 2 of £1.00 = 50p 1 / 4 of £1.00 = 25p 3 / 4 of £1.00 = 75p 1 1 / 2 of £1.00 = £1.50 1 / 5 of £1.00 = 20p 6 / 10 of £1.00 = 60p 1 / 2 of 1 kg = 500g 1 / 4 of 1kg = 250g 3 / 4 of 1kg = 750g 1 1 / 2 kg = 1500g 1 / 5 of 1kg = 200g 6 / 10 of 1kg = 600g

Plenary Explanation & Presentation Members of Squares group will explain how they solved: Activity 106 - Compare fractions They might draw on whiteboards to help show their thinking
