Fractions - Tenths


Today, we will be exploring what a 'tenth' is.

Our aim is to recognise that tenths arise from dividing one whole into 10 equal parts. 

We will be representing tenths in different ways and will use words and fractions to describe them. For example, one tenth and 1/10.




Step 1:

Watch the PowerPoint to help you understand more about tenths.




Step 2:

Now have a go at the activity sheet. You will need a printer as it involves cutting out what's on the sheet. There are three different sheets to choose from. Choose the difficulty that you feel is best suited to your ability.

If you don't have a printer, do the following:


1. Draw a grid with 10 boxes and write these fractions in the boxes.


2. Then, cut out the different fractions and glue/sellotape them in order.


3. Draw another grid with 10 boxes and write these fractions in the boxes (in words).


4. Then, cut out the words and stick them under the correct fraction.




5. When finished, draw a picture underneath to represent the fraction.




Step 3:

Have a go at completing the following worksheet.

Remember, if you don't have a printer, try editing it on your phone or simply write the answers on a separate sheet of paper.
