Equivalent Fractions

Students had pictorial investigations of different equivalent fractions. They had to find out which fractions were equivalent. The pictorial representations helped them to observe that although the numerators and denominators were different from each other they represented the same value or proportion of the whole. Students then worked in groups to join different equivalent fractions together.

Maths Trail at San Anton Gardens

The year 4 classes went for a Maths trail at San Anton garden. Students had fun doing Maths concepts outside the classroom. Students were encouraged and motivated to investigate problem-solving situations. They also had the opportunity to discover Maths application in the real world.
Due to the fact that students were very well behaved they were given an orange each. It was really juicy and tasted very good. Even teachers enjoyed the activity to the  full!!
