How much cake?

We have been learning all about fractions and what a fraction is. We decided that a fraction is fair. It needs to be the same shape, same size or the same number. 
We have also been doing loads of thinking and problem solving in our maths. We think problem solving is hard but we are very proud of our learning!

WALT: find the fractions of sets and shapes.
Success Criteria
  • I can use what I know to solve problems
  • I can use a picture to show my thinking
  • I can use materials to show my thinking
  • My shares are fair (the same shape, same size or the same number)

Reflection

My favourite part was: using materials to learn about fractions .

It was really hard when: we had to make it fair

Something that really helped me was: using the jelly beans because they help you see if it's fair shares

Something new I learned was: what fair shares is and what a quarter is.

Kerri Thinks
You have been doing lots of thinking about 'half or not half'. You understand that a half needs to be fair. Kyree, when you use materials to help show your thinking you can solve problems that involve quarters. Your next step is to use materials to help you solve the maintain it. You need to make sure you have at go at these questions each week.
