An excellent, detailed lesson plan – focusing on expressing one number as a fraction of another but also touching on other fraction topics.The two hour plan includes a good mix of hands-on practical activities (such as sorting and matching) combined with teacher input, worksheets, discussion, etc.
The five resources used in the plan are all provided (please see the first five items under See also below): a ‘patterned curtain task’, a worksheet, a fraction wall for display on an IWB, and two sets of matching/sorting

Level: E3, L1, L2

Lovely wall to help students get to grips with equivalents. Covers 1/2, /1/3, 1/4, 1/5, 1/6, 1/8, 1/9, 1/10 and 1/12ths. Great for display on an interactive whiteboard and for laminating and using with dry wipe pens, etc.

Forms part of a set of 5 resources linked to an excellent L1-2 lesson plan (that focuses on expressing one number as a fraction of another).

Can also be used independently.

Resource type: Interactive presentation, Sort or match cards

This is a PowerPoint presentation to use when teaching or revising the basic concepts of fractions and exploring common misconceptions held by students. This presentation also explores the link between fractions, decimals and percentages and the sharing of fraction amounts.
I have used the resource with Functional Skills and Skills for Life classes ranging from Entry 2 to Level 2 students.

Level: E3, L1, L2

This spreadsheet is designed to enable students to check their own work; but also to learn about what happens when you add two decimals, or multiply two fractions, and so on.

The spreadsheet consists of the following sheets:

• “Mult-div by 10-100-1000” allows a student to input a number and explore the effect when multiplied or divided by 10, 100 or 1000.

Fraction skills for working life

Resource type: Interactive presentation, Lesson plan

A set of very useful resources: detailed differentiated lesson plan (L1-2) lesson plan and two PPTs (one teacher version with answers, one student version) covering many aspects of L1-2 fractions. Generic examples and practice followed by practical applications and problems for students to work on in pairs or small groups. Examples include food/catering (a Greek party, sandwiches, etc.), production lines and time sheets.

Fractions - naming and simplifying

Level: E3, L1, L2

This PPT provides clear explanations followed by plenty of practice. A wide range of individual problems pop up allowing learners to solve them at their own pace. Great for revising ‘naming fractions’ and introducing equivalents and simplifying.
