Fractions and Problem solving

We have been learning all about fractions and what a fraction is. We decided that a fraction is fair. It needs to be the same shape, same size or the same number. 
We have also been doing loads of thinking and problem solving in our maths. We think problem solving is hard but we are very proud of our learning!

WALT: find the fractions of sets and shapes.
Success Criteria
  • I can use what I know to solve problems
  • I can use a picture to show my thinking
  • I can use materials to show my thinking
  • My shares are fair (the same shape, same size or the same number)

Reflection

My favourite part was: I like using the play dough and making it fair.

It was really hard when: it is hard to make it fair. Sometimes one bit is bigger.

Something new I learned was: a half is fair.

Kerri Thinks
You can find half of a shape like a play dough circle and half of a set like a bag of lollies. You make sure each half is the same size, same shape or the same number. Each half is fair.
