A fraction is a part of something.

You can show fractions using shapes by colouring or shading parts. 

Circles and rectangles are good shapes to use.

In this activity you have to split shapes into the right number of parts to show each fraction.

To be good at finding fractions of numbers  you need to understand multiples. So we will learn about these first.

Next we will find out how to find unit fractions, and then explore how to find other numbers of quarters and thirds.

After that we will investigate finding other fractions of different numbers.
