Y5: You will continue creating equivalent fractions today but you will be using the skill of simplifying. All this means is that, following on from yesterday's work, you will be making the equivalent fraction by dividing rather than multiplying. Here is an example:
If I have 6/9 and I have to simplify it, then I need to find the highest common factor of both 6 and 9 (this just means the highest number that 6 and 9 both divide by). If you know your tables well then this is easy! It is of course 3, so we divide the numerator and denominator by 3 giving us 2/3.
The image on your worksheet demonstrates this as well. You can find today's work on the word document below, or on page 3 of the pdf.
Good luck everyone!
