This year especially, I've found my year 8 and 9 students don't have the understanding of fractions that they should! Considering they should have this understanding of fractions, decimals and percentages at a year 5/6 level, it's SCARRY!
One of the more engaging ways I check for student understanding is to use my Jumping Fractions 5 Ways game throughout relevant units and as a general review throughout the term.
The reason I check for understanding this way is that all students can match the visual representation with the fraction. Then from there the language and it becomes either the percentage, decimal OR simplified fraction that they struggle with.
To ensure this game covers the various learning abilities, I split it into four sets.
- Set 1 - 83 cards - Match tenths fractions in all representations
- Set 2 - 31 cards - Match fifths fractions in all representations
- Set 3 - 25 cards – Match quarters fractions in all representations
- Set 4 - 9 cards – Additional simplified fraction cards to add to each level.
