              Comparing Fractions with Different Denominators

              Using a fraction wall and equivalent fractions students learn about comparing fractions with different denominators.At the start of the lesson students recap writing fractions from a using a 4 by 3 coloured grid.  In the main students use inequality symbols to compare the size of fractions with different denominators.  The plenary challenges students to order a range of fractions using a common denominator.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to use a fraction wall to compare the size of two fractions.
              • Most students should be able to use equivalent fractions to compare the sizes of fractions.
              • Some students should be able to compare the size of fractions, decimals and percentages.

              How to Draw a Venn Diagram to Calculate Probabilities

              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 […]
