Let’s Find Fractions

£10.00
SKU M2CS80300

Dive into the world of fractions with your class by exploring how fractions can be parts of shapes, measurements and numbers. Teach your class to find halves, thirds, quarters and three quarters of various shapes, numbers and quantities by investigating and discussing their ideas. Encourage them to develop their reasoning skills by telling you why some shapes don’t show a given fraction, or explaining how to find half of a shape or number.
