I’ve had my fractions knowledge tested today. The Year 6s were talking to me about lowest common denominators when comparing two fractions with different denominators and the Y4s were finding fractions of amounts.
I am very impressed with the presentation of their books, the methods and strategies used; and the quality marking from both teachers and peers.
Here is a ‘wish’ from one of the Y4s which isn’t quite mathematically correct. She wrote this ‘wish’ in her friends book. Who can reply and tell me why?
“There are 30 children in the class. 1/4 of them leave the room. How many are left?”
