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.

Refresh work from last lesson, with more modelling on the board, ensuring that the children really understand how to convert a mixed number to an improper fraction through the work of multiplication of the whole number by the denominator and then adding the numerator. Ensure the denominator always stays the same.

At this point, it would be good to refresh method of going from an improper fraction to a mixed number through dividing the numerator by the denominator. (How many groups?) Model examples on the board for this.

Go through example questions from the PowerPoint and then attempt the worksheets below:

  2. Discuss the viewpoint of the poet – is he for or against eating turkey for Christmas dinner? What are his main arguments?

Use all information gathered and discussed to prepare and hold a class debate -  one side being pro turkey farming and the other side against turkey farming.
