National Curriculum: Fractions (including decimals and percentages) - Year 6 - Video

Created on 15 October 2013 by ncetm_administrator
Updated on 18 December 2013 by ncetm_administrator


A video with demonstrations of how to find the highest common factor and lowest common multiples

Two videos focusing on adding and subtracting fractions and working with mixed numbers

A lesson in which the teacher makes a clear connection between tenths, hundredths and thousandth and decimal places

Many students have problems visualising fractions abstractly and here we see paper cups being used to concretely represent halves and quarters. Moving the cups between two places, a resources table and a maths table, makes addition and subtraction clear.

A demonstration of how paper folding can be used to support work on fractions.
