#### Transcript Fractional Framework

```Fractions …all the parts!
Presented by
D&A
Learning Outcomes
and multiplication/division strategies.
 To make sense of fractions and decimals
using equipment
 To look at BSM and FIO activities related to
fractions.
Fractions
 Draw one half on a piece of paper.
 The trapezium is one quarter of a shape
what does the shape look like?
Regions and Sets
Part to whole
Whole to part
Continuous
(length/region)
This Cuisenaire
rod is two thirds
of a length. How
long is the length?
Discrete (sets)
Here are two
lollies. They are
one-quarter of a
bag. How many
lollies are in the
bag?
Cut this circle into Here are 12
quarters
lollies. If you eat
one-quarter of
them how many do
you get?
Fractional Misconceptions
 No acceptance of the existence of numbers
between numbers
Share 5 biscuits between 4 children …. You
can’t do it!
Fractional Misconceptions
 The numerator relates to the whole
½ is 1 shared between 2
¼ is 1 shared between 4
Fractional Misconceptions


The symbol can be either way up
You can’t have fractions greater than 1

if fractions greater than 1
haven’t been explored

Using the Teaching Model
Materials
 Give half of these Smarties to Courtney and the other half
to Kieran
Imaging
 Half of the cake has 4 Smarties.
How many on the whole cake?
Number Properties
 I had 8 Smarties and I ate half of them.
How many did I have left?
Stage 5
Regions
Number
Sets
Comparison and
ordering of unit
fractions by region.
½>¼>⅛
Extend knowledge to
other fractions: Thirds,
fifths, tenths etc.
Meaning of – ths
Identify symbols for
fractions including
those greater than 1
Place of ½ on a
number line
2x½=1
4x½=2
multiplication.
Comparison and
ordering of unit
fractions by sets of
½ of 12 = 6
¼ of 12 = 3
commutativity of
multiplication.
½ x 12 = 12 x ½ = 6
Stage 6

pipe numbers
Place of all unit
fractions on the
number line
Particular attention to
tenths
Decimal notation for
tenths
Position of hundredths
on number line.
Decimal notation for
hundredths
Extend to
thousandths.
Solving
