Maths

Welcome to our Maths zone! We will update games and activities regularly, in line with what we are learning in class.

 

In term 6 we will be continuing our learning all about fractions!

 

We will continuing to explore different fractions including 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 2/4 and 3/4. We know about unit and non-unit fractions and we will be learning to compare and order these too. 

 

Unit fractions are when the numerator (the top number in a fraction) is 1. For example 1/4, 1/6, 1/13, 1/43 are all unit fractions.

Non-unit fractions have a numerator (the top number in a fraction) that is more than 1. For example 2/3, 4/7, 10/13, 25/63 are all non-unit fractions.

 

Once we have a good understanding of fractions we will start to learn how to add and subtract fractions by adding or subtracting the numerators.

Eg: 5/7 + 1/7 = 6/7

6/7 - 1/7 = 5/7
