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: learning about fair shares and making sure it was the same size.

It was really hard when: trying to make it all the same size.

Something that really helped me was: using the materials and doing some thinking because  the materials helped you work it out.

Something new I learned was: fair shares and that if you know doubles it helps you.

Kerri Thinks
You can find fractions of shapes and sets like when you worked out how many lollies there are when you have a 1/4 of 12. You can use materials to help show your thinking. Remember to keep on practising using pictures as well. Your next learning step is to make sure you are listening during group time. This will help you know how to solve the tricky problems we are woking on.
