This fourth number unit in the foundation series is dedicated to considering all key aspects of fractions. The unit begins by looking at equivalent fractions, simplifying fractions and being able to compare and order fractions. Associated terminology is introduced and used. There is a strong emphasis on the use of images to represent fractions and their equivalents in order to support mastery of this key area of mathematics. The unit continues to look at mixed fractions and students develop skills to convert between mixed and improper fractions. Skills in applying the four operations with fractions are developed. Graded questions are tackled in context.
