This week, we explored equivalent fractions and their families. We used a range of pictorial representations to investigate equivalent fractions and identify relationships between fractions with different denominators. We matched lots of different pictorial representations of fractions, writing the fraction which was represented. Then, we looked for and discussed links between fraction families. We used our times tables knowledge to notice the links between multiples in both the numerator and denominator of the fractions, helping us understand equivalent fractions.
We also used number lines to compare equivalent fractions. We explored the importance of dividing the number line into equal parts and ensuring the wholes were equal by ensuring the number lines were the same length. When we were confident with using resources we drew our pictorial representations and then thought about using multiplication and division to find equivalent fractions.
