Tasks have been carefully created to meet the common core standards and Australian curriculum outcomes for this grade level and will build proficiency, fluency, and confidence in allowing students to practice and solving problems involving fractions. This, in turn, will have a positive effect on their success in other mathematical strands and overall enjoyment of mathematics.

How this Pack Works:

Each activity has a task card that can be used by the teacher, parent helper or read by the students themselves (2 versions of each task card is included: an A4 poster and an A5 version that can be folded in half to create a standing sign). On every A4 poster, there is a list of resources needed for the task. Activities can be used and differentiated for the whole class, used as components of numeracy rotations or intervention activities in small groups to support or extend students.

We have also included two pages for teachers to use as a guide to differentiate each task to cater for the individual learners in your classroom.
