Today we are going to continue finding fractions of amounts.  



DDMN – divide by the denominator multiply by the numerator


Eg. 3/8 of 648 =   


Divide but the denominator   648 ÷ 8 = 81 (I used the bus stop method)

Multiply by the numerator      81 x 3 = 243 (I used times table 

                                                                    knowledge but you could use a column)

3/8 of 648 = 243.


Miss Wilcox and Miss Doran’s maths group:


I’d like you to start by completing the fraction maze on slide 1 of the powerpoint – answer each question and follow the correct answer to make a path through each maze.


You can record it in your exercise books as a string of questions and answers

Eg. ½ of 18 = 9,  2/3 of 12 = 8


Or you can print the sheet and draw your path.


Then complete the reasoning and problem solving questions on slide 2 of the power point.


Mrs Watson and Miss Pearce’s maths groups


Today’s question are all reasoning and problem solving questions around finding fractions of amounts.


Open the powerpoint and work through the questions.  If you click on the sound icon, there is an explanation about how to approach each question.
