Tangrams and fractions

Tangrams

Fractions work includes files for Tangrams. Great fun folding to make the 7 shapes following screens here. Find the area of each shape (proving it) as a fraction: original square has area 1 unit. Then make silhouette shapes from all 7 pieces without overlap.

Note that notebook file will have most of the content but positioning etc will need work. Some page may have to be recreated from the pdf file.

 

Mastery and fractions at KS2

These booklets are for KS1 and KS2 and contain material for assessment of mastery. This file only includes all the fraction elements (as well as address for all the booklets). Useful to see what is expected in year 6.

The Math-aids site has some good resources that you can generate for yourself and your classes – including this page on geometric constructions in the Geometry menu. Note that this has many adverts which can be removed by following the adblock link below, selecting the correct version for your computer and browser and then installing it. It also has the advantage of speeding up downloads and access to websites as (most/all) adverts are blocked.

Circles

Whole set of resources for the circle are included in the Inspire, Notebook and PDF files. The PDF file covers work we looked at during the twilight session and more!

You might want to look at the first H test as this is linked to what we covered. I will do more on circles and constructions work on December 8.

First column will give you the pdf file (which just shows the pages, no interaction); second column the Inspire flipchart with full interaction and third column gives notebook which will have full interaction but pages will look a mess (since positioning etc will be correct but all objects and files will be there.
