In the classroom – Numeracy & Mathematics

Year 7 Numeracy

The Year 7 Numeracy class have been learning about Fractions.

One of the tasks was locating fractions on a number line. Four students placed a clothes peg to represent a fraction on a number line (rope) and their classmates voted on who they thought was the closest. Eg 3/4.

Students then had to manipulate the rope to work out who was placed the peg closest to the given fraction.
