N2/E3.6

Find 1/2, 1/3, 1/4 , 1/5 and 1/10 of appropriate multiples of items or shapes (e.g. 1/2 of 32, 1/3 of 21)
(a) Understand that the numerator is always one in a unit fraction
(b) Understand that the denominator tells you how many parts into which to divide the items
(c) Understand the connection between unit fractions and the denominator when finding fractional parts

My class of adult learners were struggling to associate fractions with real world scenarios so I created this worksheet based on honest situations.
The questions are diverse in difficulty from Entry level 2 to Level 2 making it a good worksheet as a starter or revision.
