Comparing two strategy’s task: Link
A link to one of the strategy’s proof: Link
The strategy’s we did were:
•Turn improper fractions into mixed numbers by using division, like mixed numbers by using division like 47/7 to 6 5/7.
•Order fractions including halves, thirds, quarters, fifths, tenths
•Order fractions with unlike denominators finding a common denominator.
•Choose equivalent fractions from a set of fractions, like 2/3 = 8/12 and - Find the common denominator of 2 different fractions to help me work out equivalent fractions, like ¼ = 3/12, 4 x 3 = 12 so 4 and 3 will divide equally into 12 equal parts So ¼ 12 is 12 ÷ 4 = 3
•Use numbers to compare ratios with proportions, like 2:5 or 3:4 (which is greater?).
The strategy I found most challenging was probably turning fractions into mixed numbers.
My next step is to set a new maths goal.
