Fractions Learning - Year 2
This term in Year 2, the students have been learning about fractions in Mathematics.
Hands-on activities like our ‘pizza parts’ lesson stretched our BLP muscles of collaboration, making links, imagining and showing perseverance. The students were given the task of identifying how many pizza boxes were required, based on the number of whole pizzas they could create from a variety of different-sized slices.
The activity led to the students identifying equivalent fractions and the number of required pizza boxes. Middle School Campus Mathematics teacher Mr Michael Lewis was present and was able to complement the students’ deep mathematical learning.
