This resource is designed for students to match up an instruction eg "share $50 in the ratio 2:3" along with a fraction interpretation (2/5 of $50), the calculated amounts ($20 : $30) and an image (a grid of 50 with 20 shaded in and 30 not shaded in).
It fits in nicely with working out "fractions of" and is only one way of handling this concept. It works for many students.
I prefer that the tiles are cut out, matched up and glued into their exercise books but some students insist on using color or numbering, that works too.
The task sheet could be copied onto A3 and laminated for future use.
