MATHS - Fractions of a set of objects (Rev 2)

Yesterday, we looked at finding unit fractions (one part) of amounts and today we are finding fractions of amounts using non unit fractions (so we are finding MORE THAN one part)! We do this by dividing by the denominator to find one part (just as we did in our last lesson), then we multiply the one part that we find by the numerator in order to find the total amount of parts. PLEASE WATCH BOTH VIDEOS TO HELP YOU BEFORE COMPLETING TODAY'S WORKSHEET and remember, as always, challenge yourself if you can but, if you are finding the work too tricky, do let your teacher know and only attempt the challenge tasks if you are super confident. The questions today require you to have a knowledge of the 3, 4, 5, 6 and 10 times tables. Good luck! πŸ‘

Finding Fractions of Amounts

REMEMBER THIS SIMPLE RULE πŸ˜‰: to find a fraction of an amount FIRST divide by the denominator NEXT multiply by the numerator! 😁 EASY if you know your tables πŸ‘and, if you don't, just keep practising because knowing them will help you with so many of your maths topics as you move on into Years 5, 6 and beyond.
