Fractions & Decimals

OUTCOME

A student:

MA1-7NA: represents and models halves, quarters and eighths

TEACHING POINT | In Stage 1, the term ‘three-quarters’ may be used to name the remaining parts after one-quarter has been identified. |

LANGUAGE | Students should be able to communicate using the following language: whole, part, equal parts, half, quarter, eighth, one-half, one-quarter, one-eighth, halve (verb). |

Recognise and interpret common uses of halves, quarters and eighths of shapes and collections | use concrete materials to model a half, a quarter or an eighth of a whole object, eg divide a piece of ribbon into quarters |

– create quarters by halving one-half, eg ‘I halved my paper then halved it again and now I have quarters’ (Communicating, Problem Solving) | |

– describe the equal parts of a whole object, eg ‘I folded my paper into eight equal parts and now I have eighths’ (Communicating) | |

– discuss why 1/8 is less than 1/4, eg if a cake is shared among eight people, the slices are smaller than if the cake is shared among four people (Communicating, Reasoning) | |

recognise that fractions refer to equal parts of a whole, eg all four quarters of an object are the same size | |

– visualise fractions that are equal parts of a whole, eg ‘Imagine where you would cut the rectangle before cutting it’ (Problem Solving) | |

recognise when objects and shapes have been shared into halves, quarters or eighths | |

record equal parts of whole objects and shapes, and the relationship of the parts to the whole, using pictures and the fraction notation for half (1/2), quarter (1/4) and eighth (1/8), eg | |

use concrete materials to model a half, a quarter or an eighth of a collection, eg | |

– describe equal parts of a collection of objects, eg ‘I have quarters because the four parts have the same number of counters’ (Communicating) | |

recognise when a collection has been shared into halves, quarters or eighths | |

record equal parts of a collection, and the relationship of the parts to the whole, using pictures and the fraction notation for half (1/2), quarter (1/4) and eighth (1/8) | |

use fraction language in a variety of everyday contexts, eg the half-hour, one-quarter of the class |
