Fractions on a number line

 

Watch video 2. 

 

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/week-9-number-fractions/

 

Using a number line to show fractions can be a very helpful way to represent how a whole is divided equally into parts.

 

Remember, the denominator shows us how many parts there are in total and the numerator tells us how many parts we are talking about.

 

The BBC again has some great advice if today's work is a bit tricky.

Mixed numbers to improper fractions

 

Watch video 1. 

 

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-6/week-9-number-fractions/

 

  1. Multiply the denominator of the fractional part by the whole number, and add the result to the numerator.

    For example, suppose you want to convert the mixed number

     

    to an improper fraction. First, multiply 3 by 5 and add 2:

    (3 · 5) + 2 = 17

  2. Use this result as your numerator, and place it over the denominator you already have.

    Place this result over the denominator: 

 

                               

 

The BBC has got some great ideas to help

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/guides/zgqpv9q/revision/3#:~:text=To%20convert%20any%20mixed%20number%20to%20an%20improper,\frac%20{1}%20{2}%20=%20\frac%20{7}%20{2}\)

Wednesday 20th January 2021

 

Converting improper fractions to mixed numbers.

 

To convert an improper fraction into a mixed number, divide the numerator by the denominator. Write the whole number answer, then make a fraction from the remainder and the original denominator and add it to the whole number.
