Magical Mathematicians!

Today, I could really feel everyone’s brains working. We were all working on finding fractions of numbers. Some of us were working on finding quarters of numbers and the others were working on finding thirds, sixths and eighths of numbers. I love how independent we have become and more able to explain our thinking and why we are doing certain things. We all got given fraction boards to help us work out how many groups we had to share the cubes/counters between. We are really good at making sure we have equal numbers in each group. I loved how Fergus used his problem solving skills to work out what the box in the middle of our boards were for- the answer! Well done Fergus! 

Take a look at our busy brains in action!
