Fractions

Pupils should be taught to:

  • count up and down in tenths; recognise that tenths arise from dividing an object into 10 equal parts and in dividing one-digit numbers or quantities by 10
  • recognise, find and write fractions of a discrete set of objects: unit fractions and nonunit fractions with small denominators
  • recognise and use fractions as numbers: unit fractions and non-unit fractions with small denominators 
  • recognise and show, using diagrams, equivalent fractions with small denominators
  • add and subtract fractions with the same denominator within one whole [for example, 7 5 + 7 1 = 7 6 ]  compare and order unit fractions, and fractions with the same denominators
  • solve problems that involve all of the above.
