# Solve simple measure and money problems involving fractions and decimals to two decimal places

New Maths Curriculum (2014): Year 4 objectives.

Fractions of Numbers

Use a fraction bar to help children to visualise fractions of numbers. Use division facts to find a unit fraction and then scale up. Levels include finding fractions of decimals.

Crystal Crash - Fractions of Numbers

This game, together with all the other crystal crash games, is available as a single iPad or Android app.

Choose from the following levels:

 1) 1/2 of numbers up to 20 (whole answers) 5) unit fractions of up to 100 (whole answers) 9) harder multi-part fraction of up to 100 (e.g. 4/7 of 49) 2) 1/2 of numbers up to 40 (whole answers) 6) 1/10 of multiples of 10 (e.g. 1/10 of 60) 10) 1/10 of numbers up to 100 (inc. decimal answers) 3) 1/2 of numbers up to 100 (whole answers) 7) multiples of 1/10 of multiples of 10 (e.g. 3/10 of 80) 11) multiples of 1/10 of up to 100 (inc. decimal answers) 4) 1/4 of numbers up to 100 (whole answers) 8) simple multi-part fractions of up to 100 (e.g. 3/5 of 25) 12) unit fractions of up to 20 (inc. decimal answers)
Balancing Decimal Calculations

Find the missing number to balance the decimal calculations. Levels include finding the sums and differences of decimal, U.t xU and multiplying and dividing decimals by 10, 100 or 1000. Choose a range of different objectives and they will be 'balanced' against each other.

Balancing scales - convert between g and kg

The scale is loaded with between 1 and 4 weights. The user then has to balance the scales, converting between g and kg in the process. There is a great deal of control over the level.

A great starter to explore addition, subtraction / difference and partitioning as well as the relationship between grams and kilograms. Levels include converting whole kg to g (and vice versa), converting fractions of kg (eg 1/4kg = 250g) and weights in kg to 1 and 2 decimal places.

Fractions of Numbers - Mine Mayhem

This game, together with all the other Mine Mayhem games, is available as a single iOS or Android app.

Choose from the following levels:

 1) 1/2 of numbers up to 20 (whole answers) 5) unit fractions of up to 100 (whole answers) 9) harder multi-part fraction of up to 100 (e.g. 4/7 of 49) 2) 1/2 of numbers up to 40 (whole answers) 6) 1/10 of multiples of 10 (e.g. 1/10 of 60) 10) 1/10 of numbers up to 100 (inc. decimal answers) 3) 1/2 of numbers up to 100 (whole answers) 7) multiples of 1/10 of multiples of 10 (e.g. 3/10 of 80) 11) multiples of 1/10 of up to 100 (inc. decimal answers) 4) 1/4 of numbers up to 100 (whole answers) 8) simple multi-part fractions of up to 100 (e.g. 3/5 of 25) 12) unit fractions of up to 20 (inc. decimal answers)
Using a Calculator - Finding Change

Answer a variety of 2 step word problems using a calculator. Whatever is input into the calculator is then recorded and displayed, so children can see all the steps that have been taken. This makes it a great tool for demonstrating calculator skills on a whiteboard. It can also be really useful for children to practice independently, as they can trace and correct any mistakes they make.

Solve 2 Step Money Problems

Read and interpret a word problem. Calulate the cost of 2 items and then find change from a given amount.

** February 2013 - I have added a new game in which you solve 2 step money problems using a calculator **

Sequences Fractions and Decimals

Count on and back in decimal steps and fractions.

Fractions of Amounts

Click on the squares to shade the given fraction of the shape. The shape will then transform to show the equivalent fraction.
