                  This is a short activity which requires                                                     Resources
      10 mins     students to recognise fractional parts as                                                   • Cards made from resource 14 (one set per
                  being equal. Students classify cards, which                                                   pair).
                  show different applications of fractions, as
                  either true or false.

    Description
    • Students work in pairs to classify each fraction card as either true or false.
    • As pairs complete the activity, form groups of four to discuss and compare their results.
    • Teacher checks solutions, encouraging discussion about disagreements and continually emphasising
      equal parts.


     • Always specify a time limit                                                                                                                   • Raise students’ awareness of
       for these types of activities.
