Solihull maths forum publication: using resources to effectively teach fractions

Through consultation with schools, and question level analysis of 2017 and 2018 KS2 SAT papers, the primary maths forum identified the need for support with the teaching of fractions.  The fractions domain has been divided into separate key areas which include

  • Counting in fractions
  • Recognising and identifying fractions
  • Comparing and ordering fractions (incl. equivalence)
  • Adding and subtracting fractions
  • Multiplying and dividing fractions

For each key area, a variety of ideas are presented illustrating how concrete resources/ manipulatives can be used in teaching progressively from year 1 to year 6, as well as pictures and images and abstract representations for each concept.
