LO: I can recognise equivalent fractions with small denominators.


Today we are going to do exactly the same but in a different visual way. You will need to have two strips of paper that are exactly the same length. Then you need to fold

  • The first strip into quarters (Fold it and then fold again so you have 4 sections)
  • The second strip into eighths.

Now you need to colour ¼ of the first strip and 2/8 of the second strip. Once you have done this place the two strips parallel to each other.

What do you notice? What is the same?

Now can you repeat these but divide the strips into thirds and sixths.

What do you notice? What is the same?

Today, we are using strips of paper to show the equivalent fractions.
