L/O: L/O: Fractions S/C: Mixed Numbers to Improper Fractions
Whole Class input:
Children now convert from mixed numbers to improper fractions using concrete and pictorial methods to understand the abstract method. Ensure children always write their working alongside the concrete and pictorial representations so they can see the clear links.
Show and work through the following example with the children, ensuring that they use the counters too. They should understand the process and how fractions links to multiplication and also the grouping part of division. Ensure children know that they put the mixed numbers into 3 groups of the denominator (5) and then add on the remainders. They must ensure that the denominator doesn’t change. This method can be simplified by multiplying the whole number by the denominator and then adding the numerator. They then put the total as the new numerator and keep the denominator the same.
Practise this skill with a variety of mixed numbers. Draw the picture and write the correct answer next to it. Do 5 examples of your own to make sure you are confident with this skill. (Example questions = 4 3/5 5 1/6 3 3/7 2 4/5)
See the test on the 6’s, 7’s and 8’s provided. You will have 3 minutes, write down how long it took to complete and then mark.
