Year 6 – fractions of whole numbers

As a part of our arithmetic, we have been calculating fractions of whole numbers.

We either work this out by drawing it out (not very efficient), or by dividing the whole number by the denominator to get a unit fraction then multiplying by the numerator (efficient).

We looked at a simple calculation (what is two sevenths of fourteen) and then looked at some of the other calculations we can work out from this fact.
