Extra mild challenge

For those of you who find fractions really challenging. Please only tackle the extra mild challenge below. You will have opportunity to work on the additional challenges for this Friday when others look at converting mixed numbers into improper fractions.

Work through the powerpoint of explanation ( you do not need to print it out but review on the screen) and complete the task below.


Rest of challenges

Work your way through the Powerpoint explaining equivalent fractions. No need to print out but you can review on the screen. Then select the level of challenge appropriate to you. As always, you can self mark using the answers at the end of each pack. Just remember the rule we talked about in class, whatever you do to the numerator, you need to do the same to the denominator.


Today we are going to have a quick recap on causal conjunctions from Monday and then move onto exploring contrasting conjunctions.
