Two double-sided worksheets to help explain fractions. This will be particularly useful to slightly older students who have not fully grasped the concept in earlier years. It covers fractions of shapes and fractions of numbers.
Students need to already be familiar with 3, 4 and 5 times tables and understand the basic concept of division.
The first two pages give symbol and verbal "clues" on which to hang the meaning of the word "fraction". They shows the meaning of the numbers in a fraction and how this applies to fractions of shapes and numbers.
The second two pages revise the meaning of the numbers in a fraction and give more practice in finding fractions of shapes and numbers. They could be given as homework, or used to recap and consolidate the concepts in a subsequent lesson.
