Maths4Life Fractions Booklet - Sharing Cakes

Sharing Cakes

This activity includes four sets of cards, all to be cut up and matched.  The learners themselves can do the cutting up, as the sheets are arranged so that the answers are not all in the same sequence.

One set has diagrams of the cakes.   On these cards learners would need to show, by shading parts of whole cakes, or drawing lines between the cakes, how the cakes would be shared so that each of these cards matches one from each of the other sets.
