Evaluate one number as a fraction of another

(a) Understand equivalent fractions

(b) Understand simplest form

(c) Know how to reduce a fraction to its simplest form, e.g. by recognising equivalent fractions, by using factors to 'cancel'

(d) Recognise prime numbers (i.e. numbers that can't be cancelled)

(e) Understand that quantities must be in the same units to evaluate one as a fraction of another

This is a set of worksheets in a MS Excel workbook that deals with fractions.

- Sheet one: a set of pictures (pie charts) that shows fractions from halves to tenths

- Sheet two: equivalent fractions with two pie charts, learners can input fractions and see if they are equivalent by looking at the shape of the pie charts

- Sheet three: starting to look at fractions being equivalent to decimals with two pie charts one for fractions and one for decimals

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.

With curriculum mapping and answers

Another great worksheet in the never-ending Smarties series. Three level 2 tasks covering evaluating one number as a fraction of another, and adding and subtracting fractions. You will need at least one tube of Smarties.

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.

Challenging cards relating time to fractions and providing practice in expressing one number as a fraction of another. E.g. 12 minutes is 1/5 hour.

To be laminated, cut up and and sorted under “true” or “false”. Can be differentiated for Level 1 and Level 2.

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).

Level 2 worksheet with a mixture of number and “word” type problems. Also provides excellent practice with simplifying fractions.

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

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:

A useful set of revision questions covering place value, fractions, percentages, number patterns and more (also L2 prime nos, factors).

Excellent practice with many Level 2 elements including fractions, decimals, percentages, ratio, converting measures, and using formulae.

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.
