- 2. To learn about: Adding fractions click Subtracting fractions click Dividing fractions click Multiplying fractions click
- 3. Adding fractions <ul><li>To add fractions together the denominator (the bottom bit) must be the same. </li></ul><ul><li>Example </li></ul>
- 4. Now try these <ul><li>Click on the mouse to reveal the answers. </li></ul><ul><li>1 . 2 . </li></ul><ul><li>3 . 4 . </li></ul>
- 5. Subtracting fractions To subtract fractions the denominator (the bottom bit) must be the same. Example
- 6. Now try these Click on the mouse to reveal the answers. 1 . 2 . 3 . 4 .
- 7. Multiplying fractions To multiply fractions we multiply the tops and multiply the bottoms Top x Top Bottom x Bottom
- 8. Multiplying fractions Example
- 9. Now try these Click on the mouse to reveal the answers. 1 . 2 . 3 . 4 .
- 10. Dividing fractions Once you know a simple trick, dividing is as easy as multiplying! <ul><li>Turn the second fraction upside down </li></ul><ul><li>Change the divide to multiply </li></ul><ul><li>Then multiply! </li></ul>
- 11. Dividing fractions <ul><li>Turn the second fraction upside down </li></ul>Example <ul><li>Change the divide into a multiply </li></ul><ul><li>Then multiply </li></ul>
- 12. Now try these Click on the mouse to reveal the answers. 1 . 2 . 3 . 4 .
- 13. Common denominators <ul><li>To add or subtract fractions together the denominator (the bottom bit) must be the same. </li></ul>So, sometimes we have to change the bottoms to make them the same. In “maths-speak” we say we must get common denominators
- 14. Common denominators <ul><li>To get a common denominator we have to: </li></ul>1. Multiply the bottoms together. 2. Then multiply the top bit by the correct number to get an equivalent fraction
- 15. Common denominators <ul><li>For example </li></ul><ul><li>Multiply the bottoms together </li></ul>
- 16. Common denominators <ul><li>For example </li></ul>2. Write the two fractions as sixths
- 17. Common denominators <ul><li>For example </li></ul>To get ½ into sixths we have multiplied the bottom (2) by 3. To get an equivalent fraction we need to multiply the top by 3 also
- 18. Common denominators <ul><li>For example </li></ul>To get 1/3 into sixths we have multiplied the bottom (3) by 2. To get an equivalent fraction we need to multiply the top by 2 also
- 19. Common denominators <ul><li>For example </li></ul>We can now rewrite
- 20. Common denominators This is what we have done: 1. Multiply the bottoms 2.Cross multiply
- 21. Now try these Click on the mouse to reveal the answers. 1 . 2 . 3 . 4 .
