Today, Year 3A investigated equivalent fractions. We experimented by using paper plates and cutting them into equal parts. Once we had found as many equivalent fractions using our plates, we began matching up the broken fractions to complete the fraction wall. When the fraction wall was complete, we then identified fractions which were equivalent all the way up to twelfths!
”We used a paper plate and cut it in half to make two halves, then we got another plate and cut it into quarters. We then got one more paper plate and cut it into eighths. Once the paper plates were all cut, we used them to find equivalent fractions. I learnt that one half is equivalent to two quarters which is also equivalent to 4 eighths! We had so much fun”. – Amy
