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
