Recognise and use fractions as numbers: unit fractions and non-unit fractions with small denominators

New Maths Curriculum (2014): Year 3 objectives.

Fractions of Amounts 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.

Fractions of Numbers 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.

Match the shaded shapes with the correct fractions. 


ITP Fractions ITP Fractions

View full screen in your browser.  This ITP allows you to divide a green strip into a number of equal parts and colour the individual parts in yellow. You can label the strip to show what proportion the coloured yellow parts are of the whole strip. This can be shown as a vulgar fraction, decimal (to 3 decimal places) or percentage. The ratio of yellow to green can also be displayed. You can create more then one strip and drag these up and down the screen to compare strips.
The ITP can be used to explore equivalence between fractions, decimals and percentages and the different representations of the same relative quantities. The equal parts on the strips can also be used to demonstrate how to calculate fractions and percentages of given amounts and to represent a horizontal bar chart. The ITP can be used to set up and solve ratio and proportion problems.

Fractions Shape Sequences Fractions Shape Sequences

Recognise and continue the sequences involving fractions, shapes and colours. Lots of control over level including unit fractions and improper fractions. Extend children by choosing harder levels which require extending the sequence by finding general rules.
