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.

It was really hard when: trying to make fair shares when I first started learning about fractions.

Something that really helped me was: using the materials for tricky questions because they helped me figure out fair shares.

Something new I learned was: I learned what a half is, what a quarter is and about fair shares.

Charlotte, you are a fabulous learner. I know you found the fraction learning difficult at the start but you showed great perserverance and now you can find halves and quarters of shapes and sets. The 'half and not half' game really helped! Using materials and pictures to show your thinking will keep helping you grow as a mathematian. Great job!
