Fractions on a number line
Watch video 2.
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.
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
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
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.
Today is simplifying fractions.
Again the BBC provides some useful help.
Today we will be looking at adding and subtracting fractions. Watch the film about Equivalent Fractions and then complete the worksheet.
If you can't print it off write your answers with pen and paper.
The BBC link is also a great help.
Watch video 3. Then complete the simplifying fractions worksheet.

To find unit fractions of a given quantity
During this lesson, we will continue to focus on unit fractions by finding fractions in different contexts. We will use pictorial representations alongside multiplication and division facts to solve a range of problems.
To recognise, identify and describe unit fractions
In this lesson, you will build on equal parts by looking at sharing amounts equally. You will name the fractions, and using your understanding of numerator, vinculum and denominator, you will write the fraction.
After yesterday's introduction to fractions, today we will be looking at understanding equivalences. Remember equivalent involves things being the same but looking different.
