              Calculating a Fraction of an Amount

              To calculate a fraction of an amount students begin to understand how the term 'of' in mathematics relates to multiplication.  Through a series of scaffolding examples students progress from calculating a 1/4 of an amount to 4/5.  The class then apply their learning to calculate proportions rather than quantities.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate a fraction of an amount where the numerator is one.
              • Most students should be able to calculate a fraction of an amount with numerator greater than one.
              • Some students should be able to calculate a fraction of an amount when given a mixed number.

              There are three common ways to organise data that fall into multiple sets: two-way tables, frequency diagrams and Venn diagrams.  Having blogged about frequency diagrams before I thought I would write about how to draw a Venn Diagram to calculate probabilities. Recapping Two-Way Tables This activity works well to review two-way tables from the previous […]
