Lesson plan - express one number as a fraction of another

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 cards that relate fraction to common metric measures and units of time.
Very suitable for underpinning Functional Maths fraction topics.
